The motto of the association is "'Help our Neighbours to transform their Live'" and to do this offers a series of services such as assistance to employment, work with young people and elderly, housing, debt mediation, computer skills, supply of emergency food, defending victims interests facing justice...

The two social stores they opened are also an opportunity for vulnerable people to acquire employment skills. SCP also organizes free festive days for families not having the opportunity to go on holiday.


SCP differs from other organizations because it deals with people in a systemic way by taking all the needs of the person in charge. Each issue impacting on the other, there is no point to solve one without address them all.
