The community is at the heart of everything we do at Scullion LAW
Scullion LAW Annual Debating Cup 2009-2019
Scullion LAW are proud to work closely with schools throughout North and South Lanarkshire to organise an annual debate. The Scullion LAW Debating Cup is now in its 10th year. We have been working with local MSPs, teachers and businesses to guide students through the art of public speaking in the hope they will grow in confidence, form opinions of their own and realise their views actually DO matter. We are delighted to listen and find the talent in our youth so inspiring. We would like to thank all the teachers, pupils and staff that continue to take part. The competition continues to go from strength to strength and we look forward to the final in November 2019. Keep an eye on our facebook, instagram and twitter accounts @ScullionLAW for more updates.
FREE WILLS in aid of MARIE CURIE
Since 2014 we have been making FREE WILLS for everyone across Scotland aged 55 and over, in aid of Marie Curie. The FREE-WILL scheme continues to go from strength to strength with thanks for the continued generosity and kindness of people in our community. Together we have generated a substantial amount of future income for the charity to care and support people living with a terminal illness. The campaign has just ended for 2019 but please keep an eye on our website and social media pages for updates. So far we have helped nearly 600 people across Scotland make a FREE WILL and a Power of Attorney whilst raising money for a great cause.

Fundraising for Alzheimer Scotland
Over the last 12 months we have raised money from fundraising activities such as zip sliding across the River Clyde and running 10K for the charity as it is close to our hearts. Judith Higson our Associate Director leapt across the Clyde 7 September 2019 raising several hundred pounds, and Yvonne our Receptionist took part in the Memory Walk raising much needed awareness and donations in memory of her gran.
A few of us took part in the 23 mile #Kiltwalk19 from Glasgow Green to Loch Lomond on April 28th. We raised over £2,400 as a team for charities close to our hearts and this was topped up by 40% by the Tom Hunter Foundation. We all really enjoyed taking part and kept each other going throughout the 23 miles. Emma,Sarah and Liz walked for Marie Curie, Gordon walked for Classrooms in Malawi, Nicholas walked in aid of Oxfam and Diana walked in aid of the Catherine McEwan Foundation, Glasgow to raise awareness of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. We have already got a team together for taking part next year. If you would like to join us – let us know. Email firstname.lastname@example.org

On 8 December 2018 Directors Nigel and Nicholas Scullion ‘Slept Out’ in the freezing cold, Kelvingrove Park to support Social Bite. They have so far raised over £1,950 to help end homelessness across Scotland. Well done to everyone else who took part in this amazing campaign. t is such a great charity to support and they are really making such a positive difference here in Scotland to #endhomelessness.
We sponsor local boxing, bowling and football clubs. We also sponsor various golf days and ladies lunches etc. Our budgets are limited but we are always happy to help where we can. What we lack in investments we make up by giving our time, passion, effort and energy to help others.
Glasgow Business Awards – Healthy and Active Workplace
We have recently been shortlisted for the #GBA19 Healthy and Active Workplace Award. At Scullion LAW our people are always our priority and we want to ensure our internal environment is inclusive, diverse, safe and welcoming. We treat others as they wish to be treated. We respect each other and work effectively together. Everyone is accepted and valued. We celebrate the fact that each member of our staff is unique. We focus on mental, physical and spiritual well being. We have a large garden in Hamilton with a thinking swing, lots of large open windows, plants, standing desks, walking meetings, chill out zones etc and we are in the process of creating a multi faith/ mindfulness area. We also actively encourage fundraising and want our team to challenge themselves whilst doing something out of the box and raising money for causes close to their hearts. We also provide career progression, spanish classes during lunch time, subsidised yoga and gym memberships plus more… we want our team to be happy at work. We believe it encourages them to be more productive and in turn helps provide a better service to clients.
Our people are our greatest asset. We think we have a great team and as we say ‘team work makes the dream work’.

WE CARE ABOUT OUR TEAM AND WANT TO SHOUT OUT ABOUT LAW CARE
We at Scullion LAW want to continue to create a healthy and supportive working environment for all our staff and their mental health. You may ask what exactly is mental health? Well…. In a nutshell it is our emotional, psychological and social well-being. Mental health, affects how we feel, think and act and directly correlates to how we handle stress, make decisions and how we relate to others. We are in the work place for the majority of our day and we want to stress to everyone that there is support if you require it. The support on offer is completely confidential and we will never even know that you reached out for help. Remember it takes a stronger person to admit that they don’t have all the answers when it comes to dealing with uncomfortable emotions or feelings!
