Predatory Marriage

Posted on behalf of Lindsay Bridge

Part of the 16 days of action - This staff information session for a multi-agency audience presents the real life account of Joan Blass, exploring a shocking new safeguarding issue:


Justice for Joan – A Story of Predatory Marriage


“Your mother and her man friend – did you know they were married?” So, with a phone call from Joan Blass’s doctor, began a horrific series of events which have highlighted the gaps in safeguarding for the elderly and the vulnerable, both at the time of marriage and in the Law. In March 2016 Joan Blass was almost 92 years old, with severe vascular dementia and terminal cancer. She was unable to make the simplest decision….. Join us to hear the account unfold and hear Joan’s daughter as she campaigns to fill in all the gaps so that this cannot happen to anyone else!

From help in sports, relationships, the classroom, and the home, yoga continuously supports growth and development. Aside from the physical benefits of yoga, yoga teaches tweens and teens techniques for coping with the unique issues they’re faced with everyday—insecurity about their changing bodies, the enormous pressure to fit in, stressful schedules, and uncertainty about their beliefs and their futures.
Movement, and therefore yoga, is essential for fast-growing bodies.
The practice of yoga offers adolescents a discipline for discovering who they truly are. Beginning that process at a young age can shape who a young person becomes.


It’s about nourishing their imagination, asking for their insights, and then genuinely listening to what they have to say.
