solstice nurseriesA social firm is a business which exists to create employment opportunities for those disadvantaged in the labour market, and support them to engage in real and meaningful work. The aims of Solstice are to create a supportive working environment for people, within a strong team working ethos, which aids their recovery and assists those who wish to move on to other employment opportunities.

Solstice runs two main business activities. It undertakes estate maintenance services on contract to Grampian Housing Association in Aberdeen, with whom it is in partnership. In 2003/04, Solstice initiated a five year business plan to set up a horticultural nursery, aiming to become self-financing through its trading activity. Solstice is therefore still in the start up phase for this business activity, having secured investment from a range of sources.
