Well-being Resources Hub
… cultivating an inclusive, supportive working environment …
Mental health is just as important as physical health. Allocating time, space and resources to people’s mental health and wellbeing in the work place has to be encouraged. I want to champion wellbeing in the legal profession because cultivating an inclusive, supportive working environment means acknowledging that an individual’s mental health is very important; and that it needs to be looked after.
… growing and urgent need to promote and encourage well-being
These are critical times for the sector in which migrants need more support than ever before with less support available to those who assist them. There is a growing and urgent need to promote and encourage the well-being of those dealing with these increasing pressures. ILPA’s well-being working group has acknowledged and responded to this need, and I have valued and appreciated being a part of this. I hope to be able to continue to support the group in doing this and champion well-being in the sector as a well-being ambassador.
… the importance of finding ways to be happy and healthy …
As we work in a profession that is innately stressful, I think it is hugely important for there to be a space for wellbeing to be discussed openly and freely and for support and signposting to be available. I am excited to be involved in promoting ILPA’s wellbeing strategy and the importance of finding ways to be happy and healthy, to help improve wellbeing within the sector.
ILPA Well-being Conference
A really good event championing an excellent cause. With so many elements of immigration practice getting harder, it feels like the profession has a future if we are all more alert to our own well-being needs.
Immigration Lawyers are uniquely affected by an incredibly fast changing legal landscape …
For over 25 years as an Immigration Law practitioner and for 15 years as a Well-being Coach I have both witnessed and experienced the stresses, frustrations and challenges associated with working within this sector. Immigration Lawyers are uniquely affected by an incredibly fast changing legal landscape which brings with it uncertainty, lack of consistent decision making and vulnerable clients affected by these issues and often their own backgrounds. I care passionately about this initiative and feel well placed to help make a difference.
