The Charities that  SFCC are supporting in 2020 are:

The Fire Fighters Charity

The Fire Fighters Charity supports past or present members of the fire service community (not just firefighters) and their wider families.  They provide support with physical and mental health and social wellbeing, that may have stemmed from their work within the fire services.

Basically, they rescue the rescuers and help them to recover their lives when they need it most.

The Charity aims to ensure that the right support is delivered, in the right way, at the right time. They firstly need to understand individual needs; then personalise the individual care and support plans and then deliver the care required.

The Scoliosis Campaign Fund raises money to support people with Scoliosis and to contribute towards research into the condition.  

Scoliosis is curvature of the spine and can happen at any age through a variety of causes and to varying degrees.  Congenital and early onset scoliosis affects the young and degenerative scoliosis can affect older people.  The most common form is adolescent idiopathic scoliosis where the cause is unknown. The condition can have a severe impact on a person’s physical appearance, lead to medical complications and can affect their self-esteem.

To treat the condition corrective surgery is usually undertaken which in some cases can be very prolonged, complex and distressing especially for youngsters at a very vulnerable and self-conscious time of life.

Patient support through the Scoliosis Association UK provides advice through a membership network, helplines, publications, forums and an informative web site of huge benefit to both the sufferer and their families.  Their work does a huge amount to help to reduce feelings of isolation, poor body image, inadequate care, needless pain, worry, fear and lack of information.  

The Scoliosis Campaign Fund also contributes to the British Scoliosis Research Foundation which supports ground breaking research into the causes, treatments, outcomes and psychological aspects of the condition.  The aim is to try to establish the cause of idiopathic Scoliosis within 10 years.
