At Lanyon Bowdler we believe in working together using our legal skills to make a difference to people in our communities, helping them meet challenges and achieve fairness, justice, and peace of mind.
Lanyon Bowdler was invited to sign the Armed Forces Covenant in 2018, in September 2019 we received the bronze award from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS).
We commit to honour the Armed Forces Covenant and support the Armed Forces Community. We recognise the value serving personnel, both regular and reservists, veterans and military families contribute to our business and our country. We are engaging with the service community and offering our support.
The firm has a charity committee which meets several times each year. Lanyon Bowdler supports two local charities, nominated and chosen by those who work at the firm. The chosen charities for the twelve months running from 1 October 2023 are:
Y Bont, the only dedicated pregnancy decisions and pregnancy loss support service in North Wales. They are based in Wrexham and support families that have suffered fertility issues, miscarriages, stillbirths and neonatal deaths. They support families all over North Wales (including Conwy) and Chester. It is a wonderful resource for families. They offer free counselling programmes and just a safe space for families to talk and grieve and plan for the future.
Lanyon Bowdler represent a large number of families who have sadly lost babies and we know how important these organisations are. Despite their importance, there are very few resources like this in Wales and so it is even more crucial that Y Bont is supported. Their vision is to see anyone in North Wales and Chester enabled and equipped to make an informed decision about a pregnancy without fear, pressure or judgement, and to support those who have been affected by pregnancy loss through miscarriage, stillbirth or termination of pregnancy, or who have experienced neonatal loss.
Shropshire M.E Group Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, also called chronic fatigue syndrome or ME/CFS, is a long-term condition with a wide range of symptoms. Since 1987, the Shropshire M.E Group has been supporting people in the county suffering from M.E/CFS, helping them come to terms with their symptoms and the impact of living with the condition. Through resources such as our website, lending library, and support peer groups in and around Shropshire, we work hard to create a network of help for suffers, their families and caregivers. Meeting others with M.E when you are newly diagnosed, can be the key to unlocking a positive and brighter future.
