(PRESS RELEASE) BIRMINGHAM, 6-Jun-2023 — /EuropaWire/ — SCC, a Birmingham based global IT company that enables business agility and transformation through innovative managed IT services and solutions, reaffirms its commitment to inclusivity and community support through a generous grant of £1,000 and a donation of IT equipment to CASBA, a Birmingham-based charity dedicated to advocating for individuals with learning disabilities. CASBA’s mission is to empower citizens by enabling them to voice their opinions, make choices, exercise their rights, and be recognized and valued.

This partnership between SCC and CASBA encompasses a range of collaborative initiatives, including fundraising, volunteering, training, and awareness campaigns. The primary objective is to bolster CASBA’s crucial efforts and foster a more inclusive and accessible work environment at SCC, both in the West Midlands and beyond.

James Rigby, EMEA CEO of SCC, said: “We’re proud to support CASBA as part of our commitment to working with local communities to increase inclusivity at work. SCC’s a global technology business, with its heart in Birmingham, and we’re passionate about helping small, local charities succeed.

We’ll help CASBA break down barriers, support more people who have learning differences improve their lives through work, and educate and train our people, as we continue to transform and grow our business with accessibility, diversity, and inclusion being key components of our culture.

Ginny Cullen, CASBA’s CEO, added: “We’re delighted that SCC has chosen CASBA as a charity partner for 2023-24. We’re a small charity, making a huge difference, for hundreds of people with learning disabilities across Birmingham.”

“CASBA’s staff and volunteers are excited about working together to raise vital funds for our work to empower people with learning disabilities to get their voices heard.”

In Birmingham, only 1.4% of individuals with learning disabilities are engaged in paid employment due to the formidable barriers they encounter. Through joint endeavors, CASBA and SCC aim to dismantle these barriers, enabling individuals with various learning differences to contribute meaningfully, be appreciated, and enhance their lives through gainful employment.

By supporting CASBA’s advocacy work and embracing inclusivity, SCC takes a significant step toward creating a more equitable society where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. This partnership aligns with SCC’s core values and underscores its dedication to making a positive impact within the local community.
