A barristers company has launched a partnership with a Wolverhampton charity.

Launching the partnership was Jade Secker, Hayley Powell, Lucy Owen and James Farmer

Cornwall Street Barristers has teamed up with The Haven Wolverhampton to offer the charity support, fundraising and awareness of the work they do to help woman and children suffering from domestic violence, homelessness and abuse.

The Birmingham-based barristers group work on a number of domestic abuse cases and have recognised the vital work charities like The Haven provide in the community.

Manager of the company, James Farmer, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have chosen The Haven Wolverhampton as our charity for 2019.

“Domestic abuse is a highly political and emotional subject that as the statistics show affects a large number of people each year.

“The large majority of cases our barristers act in involve domestic abuse, whether that be in family law or criminal law.

“We felt only right that our chosen charity for this year should be a charity that dedicates its time to support women and children in our local area who have been subjected to domestic abuse.”

Representatives from The Haven and Cornwall Street Barristers met at the Slug & Lettuce bar in Queen Square, Wolverhampton, to officially launch their partnership.

Jade Secker, senior community fundraiser at The Haven, said: “We are so thrilled to be partnering with Cornwall Street Barristers throughout the next year.


“They are an extremely passionate and enthusiastic team and are already hosting and arranging so many events and awareness raising activities to ensure vital support for The Haven.

“From the launch event, it offers us the opportunity to dispel some myths and share real stories with the team, to taking part in our totally wiped out event later this year – and everything in between.

“We are really thankful to Cornwall Street Barristers for choosing to support the women and children at The Haven.

“We’re looking forward to the next 12 months.”
