Time flies here at Solo HQ - we are now 7!!

What better way to celebrate a birthday than with cake (We probably mentioned before that Solo love an excuse to eat cake!)

This week also marks 6 years service for Helen Brown, Business Manager and also Emily Dennett, Operations Manager.

We spoke to Helen just before the team cut the cake: "We've come along way since I joined the company in 2012, the business has grown beyond anyones expectations. Importantly though, the company vision and values remain the same with our clients being at the heart of everything we do. We have a great team here in Solo HQ and we enjoy celebrating these milestones to show them that they are valued too."

Happy birthday Solo!

This week is National Epilepsy Week. Epilepsy is a condition that affects the brain. Activity happens in our brain all the time, between the tiny brain cells which send messages to each other. These messages control our thoughts, movements, senses and body functions. A seizure happens when there is a sudden, intesnse burst of activity in the brain which causes the messages between cells to get mixed up This causes an epileptic seizures which can be very distressing and debilitating for the individual.

Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological conditions in the work, affecting around 600,000 eople in the UK alone. This means that almost 1 in 100 people un the UK have epilepsy and 87 people are diagnosed with every day.

Today we held our first Digni-tea event, led by our Dignity Champion, Client Relations Manager Roisin Burton.

Roisin led the head office team in a discussion about what dignity means to each of us, she was also able to share thoughts on the defination of dignity from our clients and care staff. We created a Digni-tree with our thoughts on the subject to create a visual effect to remind us all on a regular basis.

Roisin also spent time discussing the values of the Dignity Council which echo many of Solo's vision and values too.

Pictures: Roisin with the Digni-tree created by head office and support staff as well as clients. Comments from the Digni-tree
