Thomson Snell & Passmore partners with the Children’s Respite Trust

Kent law firm Thomson Snell & Passmore and the Children’s Respite Trust have set out on a two-year charity partnership.

Believing that no family should have to care for a disabled child alone, the Children’s Respite Trust provides respite at its centre in Uckfield, as well as through its community support workers across Sussex and Kent.

For some families, the care provided means parents can spend time with siblings of the disabled children and for others, it offers a chance to rest. For all families, it’s an opportunity to do things that many take for granted, while the children themselves have the best time possible.

Working together, Thomson Snell & Passmore will support key events, as well as take part in fundraising and volunteering opportunities for the Children’s Respite Trust.

The charity was selected following a staff vote from a shortlist of six charities, and follows on from previous charity partnerships with Tree of Hope, Dandelion Time and Demelza. 

Thomson Snell & Passmore CEO Sarah Henwood said: “The Children’s Respite Trust does fantastic work, supporting disabled children and their families.

“We’re really looking forward to supporting them and are planning a wide range of events, activities and initiatives to help raise much-needed funds.

“Helping those who live and work in our communities to thrive is central to the firm’s ethos, and it was particularly important to everyone at the firm to support a smaller, local charity, especially at a time when so many charities are struggling.”

Michelle Hulse, head of care at the Children’s Respite Trust, added: “We are incredibly grateful to Thomson Snell & Passmore for choosing us as their charity partner. Their support across the two years will make a significant difference to the lives of the children and families we serve.

“With their help, we can provide even more respite care and ensure that no family has to face the challenges of caring for a disabled child alone. We look forward to working together and making a positive impact in our community.”
