What Safety Guidance Should Farm Families Be Aware Of?
Discussion “The agriculture industry is consistently ranked as one of the most hazardous industries in the United States with some of the highest rates of work related injuries and deaths. Agriculture is a unique profession in that children who live on farms are exposed to, and in participate in, the family business of farming. Moreover, children who work on their family farm fall outside the regulation of governmental safety and labor practices….There is often little separation between work areas and play or living areas, thus children living on or visiting a farm may be in close proximity to safety hazards. ...

A union that keeps making LGBT+ history
February is LGBT History Month, so what better time to take a few minutes to consider how UNISON has been making history in the fight for LGBT+ equality – and to have a chat with someone who’s been deeply involved in that struggle. But first, let’s check out the history. Decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales finally occurred in 1967 – lesbianism had never been illegal. In 1976 NALGO, one of UNISON’s founding unions, was urging negotiators to seek to add sexual orientation to non-discrimination clauses in all collective agreements. In 1981, NUPE member Susan Shell was sacked f...

Increasing Attachment in Grandfamilies and Kinship Care
While working as a family therapist with kinship families, also known as grandparents raising their grandchildren, I came across families who were struggling with the ability to rebuild broken trust. Raising your grandchild (or another relative) brings with it attachment challenges you may not have faced when you raised your biological children. By “attachment” I am referring to the safety and comfort that develops, over time between a child and caregiver. For example, the bond between you and your children probably grew organically, beginning in utero, and continued to develop from the first day of their life...
