Solstice is a user-led, up and coming social firm working in partnership with Grampian Housing Association. The main aim of Solstice is to provide supported employment and training for people recovering from severe and enduring mental illness. It provides varying levels of individual support to enable people to progress to open employment.
Solstice provides a gardening service for Grampian Housing Properties. This involves contract work for open space maintenance, assisted garden maintenance for less able tenants, as well as a private gardening service for the public. Solstice intends to open a wholesale nursery in order to grow specialist plants and provide a supported, therapeutic workplace with training opportunities for members of the Solstice squad and for other groups.
