Solutions was eye opening and challenging. I would recommend this place to anyone.


The staff at Solutions are very friendly and knowledgeable. They gave me the opportunity to enhance my skills and find a work placement that led to employment. I would like to thank them for all their support – not just for me, but for helping others improve their futures, too.
