At Search Laboratory we have a core set of five values that we are proud to work and live by. We feel they give a really good sense of what we are about and who we are both as a company, and as individuals. One of them is 'Treat others as you would expect to be treated' and we try to apply this ethos to everything we do both in our work and in our interaction with the local community.

We have openly committed to help others, both locally and further afield. We do this by donating time and money to a selection of handpicked charities each year. We take part in sponsored fundraisers, organise our own events and volunteer our time in an effort to raise money for deserving charities. We also support our chosen charities by helping them improve their online presence so they can increase their causes visibility and hopefully generate more valuable donations online.

Which charities have we supported recently?

In 2011, Search Laboratory supported local Leeds-based homelessness charity Simon on the Streets and in 2012/3 we are worked in aid of Candlelighters, another local charity that focuses on providing much needed support for children with cancer, and their families. This year we are supporting Yorkshire charity Brain Tumour Research and Support (BTRS) who actively raise funds in order to find better treatment and ultimately a cure for brain tumours.

Simon on the Streets

Simon on the Streets offers street-based support for those in need across Yorkshire providing front-line emotional and practical support to those who are homeless; at risk of becoming homeless; and those with behavioural and mental health issues.

Candlelighters was formed more than 40 years ago to help and support children diagnosed with cancer, and their families. The charity was founded by, and is still run by, parents of children who have or have had cancer and the medical staff who treat them.
