What does SAL stand for?

SAL stands for Snakes and Ladders.

The origin of the game dates back to 16th century India back then the game was called ‘Leela’ and reflected the Hinduism consciousness around everyday life. It was taken to the UK in the early 1800s and renamed snakes and ladders since then it has been a popular game for children to play. As with most games, it requires both optimism and skill to get the most out of it.

Why have we chosen this particular game to represent our consultancy?

The ‘game’ Snakes and Ladders appears very much reflective of one’s endeavours in life (perhaps of life in general). The idea of ‘ups and downs’ is a common and much-expressed truism and that applies in so many ways for the individuals we support, their families and also those agencies who actively seek to support and provide service. But it is not the notion of “ups and downs” or “one step forward – two steps backwards” that resonates for SAL Consulting but rather a triad of ideas that are also embodied in the game.

These are:

For SAL Consulting ‘Snakes and Ladders’ represents a mindset and approach for action and achievement rather than feeling a lack of control.
