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.
