Coporate and Social Responsibility

At Service Care Solutions we do more than just talk about CSR, as well as maintaining the highest level of service for our customers and clients, we aim to have a real and tangible effect on our local community in a positive manner. In order to help us achieve this goal, Service Care Solutions has split their focus into two categories, Charitable and Environmental.

Charitable

Service Care Solutions has partnered with 5 local charities which we aim to help in a number of ways including financially through fundraising and by increasing their exposure through marketing. The charities were chosen by the staff here at SCS, some charities have personal importance to our staff, some have been supported by our staff in the past and some are just deserving organisations which we have selected. Below is an introduction to the charities which Service Care Solutions have partnered with:

The Foxton Centre - Preston



The Foxton Centre aims to work with the most marginalised communities in Preston to provide them with opportunities to flourish
as human beings by:

 

  • Being a resource of people, place and community, especially for those on the margins of society

  • Actively working with individuals, groups and communities to promote social justice

  • Helping people move beyond their limitations; to grow, learn and flourish.

Derian House - Preston



Derian House provides respite and bereavement support for children who either have a life-limiting or life-shortening condition. Our teams support the entire family and we can work with families both at their own home and at our children’s hospice in Chorley.
The emphasis is on giving support to children and their families, and providing them with choices which deliver an approach to care as individual as they are. Derian House has an enviable reputation in setting exceptionally high standards in children’s hospice care. With a catchment area covering the whole of Lancashire and the South Lakes it is currently supporting more than 300 families who have a child or young adult suffering from a life shortening condition, as well as providing bereavement support for a further 200 families.

We are immensely privileged to provide a service which is so crucial to these children and young people, and to be part of a team which supports them and their family through the highs and lows of their illness, and beyond. Drawing on experience gained over the past twenty three years, the hospice team has refined and developed a range of care techniques and support strategies in such a way as to maximise potential, and ensure best practice across all disciplines within the hospice.

As a key member of Together for Short Lives, it is seen as a major contributor to a body which unites in seeking the exchange of views, policies and information for the ongoing promotion of best practice. Central to such is the partnership with other health care professionals and associated care services in maintaining the high standing that Derian House has achieved in the field of children’s hospice care.

St Catherines Hospice - Preston

St Catherine’s Hospice is a local charity which is here to help people in our community affected by serious illness enjoy quality of life and have dignity in death.

We were built by the community, for the community and could not survive without their on-going support in raising a huge £3.5m of our annual £5.2m running costs each year.

Our specialised, personalised services for adults facing conditions such as cancer, heart failure and motor neurone disease are delivered at the hospice, in the community and at home.

The SPACE Centre offers a totally flexible environment for families, carers, therapists and teachers
which:

 

  • Allows freedom for clients to move in safety.

  • Builds confidence and motivation increasing learning potential.

  • Provides a world of sensory stimulation and enables assessment of sensory abilities by presenting one stimuli at one time and excluding unnecessary distractions.

  • Encourages relaxation in a calm and controlled atmosphere.

  • Gives the opportunity for those who are wheelchair bound to be out of their chairs and experience different positions.

  • Enables life skills to be developed through structured and educational programs using switch work to give control to the client.

  • Encourages communication skills and choice making.

  • Hundreds of groups and individuals visit each month, including special schools, respite care homes, family bookings, play-schemes, parent support groups, after school clubs and also day centres and community homes who cater for young people and adults with physical and learning disabilities.

SPACE can cater for people with a wide range of disabilities including Cerebral Palsy, Profound Multiple Disabilities, Autism and brain injuries. Groups come from all over the north west and sometimes even further afield, which demonstrates the need for such a facility and illustrates the fact that there are no other centres like SPACE.

Environmental

Part of our responsibilities to the local community is to not have a negative effect on the both the local and global environment. Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do here at SCS and in-fact makes up a key part of our vision "to be a long term sustainable recruitment consultancy"; this is not just with regards to the performance of our business but the effect that we have on the environment. Service Care Solutions are currently in discussion with environmental organisations in order to discover our carbon footprint and formulate a plan on how we can improve our carbon footprint as a business in the future. Keep an eye out on this page and our blogs for updates on this over the coming months.
