MSB Solicitors Launch Short Film in Partnership with Savera UK
By Shauna from Savera UK
Savera UK held a conference in partnership with Wirral Connect, MSB Solicitors and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation on 14th July to remember the victims of 'honour' killings and to raise awareness to ensure that services understand issues surrounding Honour Based Abuse.
As well as taking part in the conference, MSB Solicitors filmed the event, creating a moving summary of the day. Wendy Eves from MSB stated, "we [MSB and Savera UK] realise we have a passion about the same areas of work". It is this passion that must be shared amongst all agencies in Merseyside and Cheshire to help combat these issues that are happening on our doorsteps. This theme of multiagency cooperation was raised many times by speakers at the event and Savera UK's patron Nazir Afzal (OBE) declared at the event that "education is key".
Savera UK are so grateful to MSB Solicitors for the participation and cooperation. We hope to only strengthen our relationship with them in order to help to develop work surrounding 'honour' cases in Merseyside and Cheshire.
