I have got capacity to offer some support to small business owners in the Firbank community where needed. Contact me for an initial, complimentary chat with any small business owners who are not sure how to handle this situation from a “HR” standpoint. As we are seeing every day, the longer this goes on the more jobs will be affected in Australia and I’d be happy to offer free initial consultations to employers who are struggling with what this means for their employees and how best to handle it.

Nicholes Family Lawyers would like to offer their unique Family Law services to all Firbank Community members, through a dynamic and community based Podcast Series which the firm started as an immediate response to COVID-19, for those most vulnerable including women and children at risk of family violence.
The unique circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic have given rise to a number of issues surrounding family violence, separation, and parenting arrangements. As such, Nicholes Family Lawyers have begun developing their own range of Podcasts which cover a number of nuanced issues related to COVID-19 and Family Law, such as child protection and parenting in self isolation and self-care. They have also been sure to include ‘fun stories’ by interviewing the award winning “Chicks Talking Footy” commentators to find out how they are responding to the absence of footy! They have already partnered with WIRE (the Women’s information Referral Exchange) who look after women and people of diversity and who are non-binary.
