Founded by Jim Moores, a former Civil Servant and Local Government Officer, for 25 years SCN’s systems have provided the information tools for thousands of staff on the front line of social care. Every day, those same staff rely on our systems to manage caseload and to evidence the services they have provided to all groups of clients in the care sector and we would like to take this opportunity to say ‘Thank You’ to everyone that has been involved in our journey.
