They say that you can wait for a bus for hours and then three come at the same time – well, the same can be said for Awards in SoLO’s case.
The first award was the MBE, in June, for our CEO, Janet Down, for services to children and adults with a learning disability in the West Midlands (and most of her work has been within SoLO)
The second award was two weeks ago when SoLO was awarded the Community Project of the Year Award from the Brummies 2017 awards programme.
And now, for our third award, SoLO picked up the Solihull Chamber of Commerce Award for most Outstanding Contribution to the Community in their 2017 Awards Night.
It is enough to know that we are providing a good quality service for our members and to see their development as they go from strength to strength, accessing more from life and reaching their potential. However, it is rather nice to have external validation of what we are doing and it is lovely to know that people outside the organisation value what we do.
