Liverpool law firm DWF is taking a key role in this weekend’s Liverpool Pride event – reflecting the growing number of same-sex couples who are having to deal with often complex legal issues.
Pride takes place this Saturday, August 1, and following the march around the city, the focus will be on events in St John’s Gardens at the back of St George’s Hall.
A major element of that will be the education area, open from 1.30pm to 6pm, which will comprise charities and organisations who will be there to provide various different types of information.
One of the organisers of Pride, Emma Baldry, told ECHO Business: “This is not education in the traditional sense of teaching young people something. It is an education for all ages area.
“There are some of the local charities, such Sahir House and the Whitechapel Centre, telling people what they can offer in terms of support to different people in the community, through to education-type charities that will be there to support young people who don’t know who to turn to.
“Then we have people such as DWF, Care Fertility and After Adoption who will address issues about wanting to become families or the legal issues that arise when two people are co-habiting.”
