Senior Citizens Concern CLG (SCCCLG) is a non-profit making company which originated in 1973, when, in answer to community needs, concerned local people began to actively help older people with laundry, fuel supply and house repairs, etc. In 1985, in response to an ever growing need, the company built ten houses for homeless people at Ban Aiteann, Ramsgrange. In 1995, urged on by the success of their project, and with the aid of grants, donations, fundraising etc., SCCCLG was delighted to set up the St Louis Day Care Centre, Ramsgrange. This was due to the dedicated endeavour by the Board of Management and the generosity of the St. Louis Sisters, in consultation with relevant public bodies e.g. the HSE and CSP. Later, a transport system evolved along with other essential services. As requirements grew, new facilities were added until the Centre has become the high quality, state-of-the-art community resource it is today.
