A key aim of SCL’s 2020 Vision Strategy was to be granted an extension of the existing Swale Leisure contract. Swale Borough Council approved this, extending the contract until 2025. This will allow SCL to continue making a positive impact on the lives of the local community as well as to it’s employees.
SCL prides itself on the impact its work is having and is now planning for 2025 and beyond. Our impact report is intended to illustrate what has been achieved and what can be achieved in the future.
