We have teamed up with Rugby League Cares to provide the Rugby League playing community access to our progressive legal advice and exceptional service across personal and business related matters.

Specialists here at Slater Heelis will be on hand to provide support and trusted legal services to current and former players and their families at every level of the sport, including Super League, Championship, League 1, Women’s Super League, the England Performance Unit and the community game.

Chris Rostron, the Head of Rugby League Cares, said:We are delighted to welcome Slater Heelis as the official legal partner of our Business Club and are looking forward to working with them to provide enhanced opportunities for players and their families. 

“Slater Heelis come highly recommended and are already working with members of the Rugby League family: they understand the sport and the needs of the people in it, which is really important for us.

“This partnership reaffirms the charity’s commitment to giving our playing community access to the very best services and opportunities that exist.”

We look forward to providing specialised workshops and events for the community connected through Rugby League Cares, as well as benefitting from their own expertise in terms of additional high level support to ameliorate our wellbeing offering for staff.

Charlotte Beck, Partner in our Family Team, said: “I am really excited and proud to announce this partnership with RL Cares. 

“We are committed to helping and supporting those associated with the sport through not only the good times with new purchases and business ventures, but also when times are tough. 

“We are dedicated to being a strong addition to the RL Cares team and will ensure practical and personal service to anyone who needs it.”

Tailored to specific needs

We know when acting for clients in any area of our business, it is important to understand their specific needs and what outcomes they want to achieve.

RL Cares is delighted to have the guidance and advice if partner-led teams to support its players- whether that is the family team who will offer support through separation, divorce and arranging contact with children or, advising on ways to protect assets; the property team who will guide clients through their next house purchase or commercial property venture; the corporate and employment team who can help clients manage their employees and grow their business.

We look forward to seeing this partnership flourish, and to hopefully have some real-life contact with the RL Cares community over the coming months.

Our new Partnership with LGBT Mummies Tribe

We are extremely excited to announce our newly formed partnership with LBGT Mummies Tribe. This collaboration will help educate mothers and people in the LGBT+ community on their journey to parenthood on a range of legal issues, or in respect of their family, including advice about surrogacy and fertility treatment, employment rights, family matters and much more.

This collaboration comes as we celebrate our status as Corporate Partner of the LGBT Foundation. We have also recently become the preferred legal contact for Switchboard, which operates nationally.

 About LGBT Mummies Tribe

LGBT Mummies Tribe provides guidance where it was previously difficult for people in the community to find information about parenthood and starting a family.

Its purpose is to ‘Educate, Share, & Celebrate’ LGBT+ women & people worldwide on the path to motherhood and parenthood. They work tirelessly to inspire LGBT+ women and people on their quest to parenthood, whilst working to normalise their families in the media and to create a more inclusive future for their children.

Alongside its aim to empower and resource the community, LGBT Mummies Tribe is passionate about making long-term change for same-sex female families. It is currently in talks with the government, NHS and other governing bodies to bring policy change and support to ensure equality and inclusivity to LGBT+ parents and their children through the health system and associated services.

Guidance and support for LGBT+ families

LGBT Mummies Tribe act as a central point of support and a safe haven. They provide invaluable information, advice and knowledge on the available routes to starting a family through their website and social channels. Their services span everything from advising on fertility clinics and banks, educational resources, support groups and services to information on charities, and LGBT+ brands.

Whether members are thinking of starting a family or have children already by fertility treatment, surrogacy, adoption or fostering, as a single parent, co-parent or a step-parent, all LGBT+ mothers and parents are invited to join the Tribe and explore its extensive resources.

Our team here at Slater Heelis can advise families on the legal aspects of their chosen route to parenthood. We ensure that all parties have a full understanding of their rights and help to steer the sometimes bumpy road of parenthood and families.

Stay Connected

We will be running Q&A’s, info sessions and providing legal support for members of LGBT Mummies Tribe over the coming months. Most of this activity will take place on Instagram.
