EAD has, for many years, acted on behalf of members of Unite the Union in the Union’s ecclesiastical section. Stephen Pinder and Graham Roberts have been involved in a number of cases, including applications to the Employment Tribunal, cases dealt with on appeal (Sharpe v Church of England) and also internal disciplinary issues within the Church.

From a Claimant perspective, EAD has some of the most experienced solicitors working in this specialist area of law, and that experience will be available to you should the need arise.
If you need legal advice contact EAD and we will work with you on a basis to ensure that legal advice is both available and affordable. In some cases it is possible to apply for legal aid through the Church, and every avenue of funding which is available will be considered.
