At SCL we enjoy each others company and therefore we provide some great social events for us all to enjoy. We don’t force anyone to join in and if you aren’t keen on socialising it is never frowned upon, we are all different and unique and as a business we respect that. The Company funds most of our social events and everyone mixes with each other, from our CEO, to our staff out in the field who work hard all year delivering great experiences for the children and young people in our care. Our last summer social was at Ascot races and our Christmas party was a huge party with dinner, dodgems, dancing and much more!
Making a difference in the communities we serve is an important ethos of SCL, not just through the services we provide but through Charity work. At SCL, as part of giving back we provide support and sponsorship to Simon Says, a Charity whose main aim is to provide a difference to children and young people who have suffered a bereavement. SCL provide their support by running various schemes, such as Toy donations at Christmas, fundraising money and attending Simon Says events.
It is important to everyone at SCL that we make a difference to the lives of children and young people.
