Social enterprise support
Sidey is supporting LAMH Recycle, a social enterprise scheme in Motherwell that provides training, volunteering and work opportunities for people facing barriers to employment.
As well as providing a monthly donation of £100 to LAMH, Sidey also gives all old IT equipment to the thriving project for them to refurbish, recycle and resell.
Items that they can benefit from include PC towers, hard drives, laptops, monitors, printers, desk, chairs, filing cabinets, cupboards and bookcases.
Funds raised enable LAMH Recycle to provide customised training programmes and help to combat the range of issues that can stand in the way of finding employment, such as focused work experience, CV writing, and free access to their job search computer suite.
“We’re passionate about giving something back to the local community,” Steve Hardy, Sidey’s managing director, said. “LAMH’s policy of refurbish, recycle and resell fits in well with our own strong environmental philosophies and we’re really pleased to provide them with ongoing support.
“The support they are giving to disadvantaged people in Scotland is invaluable and we encourage other local businesses to get involved.”
