Timms Solicitors Care Conference Donations Support Local Charities

Published on Wednesday 14 December 2022

Leading law firm Timms Solicitors have presented cheques to two local charities following its annual childcare conference for fellow professionals which focused on the impact of the pandemic on families and young people.


Timms is recognised as a leading Family Law firm with an experienced childcare team working across its offices in Derby, Burton-upon-Trent and Swadlincote.

The firm organised its eighth annual conference recently in Derby which was attended by more than 60 delegates from across the East Midlands representing the legal, local authority and Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (CAFCASS) professions.

Guest speakers included Tracy Harrison, CEO of Derbyshire’s specialist child exploitation charity Safe and Sound which has received £250 from donations at the conference.  The same amount was also presented to Derby County Community Trust as part of Timms’ long-standing support for the charity’s wide-reaching community programme.

Timms Solicitors managing partner Fiona Moffat explained: “In this, our 130th anniversary year, we were delighted to be able to reintroduce the in-person annual childcare conference.

“Each event is focused on a different aspect of law relating to children and are designed to share key topical knowledge across the profession, giving advice and understanding to help everyone in their day to day jobs.

“It was particularly relevant this year to hear from a wide range of speakers who highlighted the widespread impact that the pandemic, particularly periods of lockdown, have had on the health, wellbeing and safety of young people and their families.

“This insight is helping a wide range of professionals shape their approach to contact with families and gain a better understanding of the support available to them.

“Timms always donate to a charity as part of this event and we were delighted to again support Safe and Sound and DCCT who both have a very important role to play in supporting young people and families in our local communities.”
