Information for employers 

Can you help someone seeking a route back to full-time work?


After several months at Solstice Nurseries, many of our participants are ready to try working in mainstream employment on a part-time basis.  We are building a bank of employers who are able to give a chance to someone who is recovering from mental health issues by giving them a work placement, perhaps on a part-time basis for a few months. This placement is fully supported by Solstice Nurseries. If you think you can help, please contact us.

Many of our participants have been unemployed for many years and need the additional support and training that Solstice Nurseries provides before they are able to benefit from returning to work.



Do you want to support a staff member who is off ill?

If you want to support one of your existing staff members back into employment by a placement at Solstice, please get in touch to see how we can help.  We can offer your staff member support over 1, 2 or 3 days a week to build their confidence before they return to full-time work.
