Benchmark Recruit setting high standards for charity partnership with SCCCC

AWARD-winning Sheffield-based recruitment consultancy, Benchmark have chosen older peoples charity SCCCC as their charity partner.

Rebecca (Becca) Morris, Director of Benchmark first heard of SCCCC after hearing a speech by the charity CEO Mark Storey, she was moved by the cause.

She said:

“I immediately wanted to find out more about the charity. Mark had me in tears when highlighting the number of isolated older people living in our community. The statistic is horrifying!”

Since this first encounter, Becca has continued to support SCCCC in several ways, including becoming a volunteer on the Good Neighbours Scheme befriending service.

She said:

“I couldn’t wait to get signed up as a volunteer and start visiting an older person. The older generation gets forgotten sometimes. We have an ageing population and services do not always provide the support they need. Isolation is a growing problem; people can become stuck within four walls with few people to talk to.

“SCCCC have a great team who are dedicated and passionate about supporting older people, it’s not just a job for them. Not only do they work for the charity but they offer support and connect with the community themselves. I do not believe one person there treats their role as just a day job, they all want to be there for the service users which I found infectious.

“I chose SCCCC as Benchmark’s charity partner to get involved with their day-to-day service provision and fundraising activities and to help shout about the good they do and get more people involved. I have supported SCCCC with their recruitment campaigns to find great employees for their organisation as well as support the Hospital to Home scheme during the ambulance strikes to allow people to be discharged from hospital.”

SCCCC CEO Mark Storey said:

“We are proud to be charity partners with Becca, she has already given so much to support isolated and vulnerable older people as well as to us as an organisation. We are looking forward to working together in the future.”
