    FRU have been very busy today moving out of our old office at Kingsbourne House on High Holborn.  We have managed to keep the office open (remotely) during our move.

    We are successfully in our new office at Gray’s Inn Square; however, we still have the much bigger task of unpacking ahead of us.

    Our new address is 10/11 Gray’s Inn Square, Gray’s Inn, London, WC1R 5JD.

    30 of the most senior employment lawyers are raising money for FRU by delivering training webinars during March. The webinars, organised by leading barrister Daniel Barnett, cover a wide range of employment law topics. The employment law leading lights from the Bar and law firms are giving up their time for free to offer the 30 webinars.

    Daniel Barnett has personally underwritten a donation of £20,000 to FRU from the proceeds of the webinars.

    FRU Chief Executive David Abbott said "we are enormously grateful to Daniel Barnett for organising the webinars and for the very generous donation of £20,000. Those funds will help us to continue our service during the next 12 months. We are also grateful to all 30 leading lawyers for giving up their time to speak and answer questions, it is hugely cheering to have this support from across the legal profession".

    We were delighted that our work was featured on the weekly national radio programme The LBC Legal Hour on 9 January. 

    The show, hosted by long-time FRU supporter and former volunteer Daniel Barnett, airs each Saturday. 

    Daniel invited FRU Chief Executive David Abbott on to the show to briefly explain what our service is and how it works.

    David said "I'm very grateful to Daniel for enabling me to tell people how we can help them.  We want to help as many people as possible and we know that facing tribunal proceedings on your own is a daunting prospect".
