Helping elderly, disabled and vulnerable clients stay safe warm and secure within their own homes by undertaking property maintenance and adaptations.

Bringing empty properties back into use for those in greatest housing need and managing the property and tenancies on completion.



SC&R is an Industrial and provident Society registered as a Social Enterprise, which undertakes repairs and adaptations for elderly and disabled clients. Anything from a tap washer to a full extension. SC&R has its own stair lift company which provided both new and reconditioned lifts.

SC&R lease/repairs and purchase/repairs empty properties and brings them back into use for those in greatest housing need. In the process it provides onsite construction training to ex-offenders and long term unemployed. It works closely with local colleges and other voluntary sector organisations to look at overcoming the barriers to employment.

SC&R also runs a building materials reuse centre recycling unwanted building materials and in the process help train long term unemployed volunteers to produce wooden products, administration, warehousing etc.

SC&R are just about to take over the running of a furniture re-cycling project.
