Convey Law MD Lloyd Davies has been talking about the Conveyancing Foundation’s recently-launched #BeKindWeCare initiative in a podcast with PLS Solicitors’ MD Dan Hickey, featured in Today’s Conveyancer.
In the latest ‘PLS POD’, Lloyd and Dan engaged in a frank conversation about some of the issues faced by the property industry over the last year which led to calls for the set-up of something to help those under pressure.
They both agreed that everyone in the industry had been coping with the twin demands of operating remotely and dealing with the increased workload generated by the Stamp Duty holiday.
In the face of the challenges, Lloyd said it was crucial that clients not only tried to understand that everyone was doing their best in difficult circumstances but also that businesses boosted their wellbeing support for staff.
And, after the Conveyancing Association was approached by a number of members asking for help, #BeKindWeCare was set up.
The initiative, working in partnership with charities LawCare, Agents Together and the Mindstep Foundation, provides mental health and wellbeing resources for anyone who needs help in the property industry.
