What an honour…. to share that Janet Down CEO of SoLO Life Opportunities has been awarded the MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.  The MBE is awarded for an outstanding achievement or service to the community. This will have had a long-term, significant impact and stand out as an example to others.  This absolutely sums up what Janet has done for SoLO and its members over the last 17 years.

Janet has been a pivotal part of the growth of SoLO from a “kitchen table” charity in the beginning to a charity which now offers so much to its members.  Her leadership and her enthusiasm have been a shining example to so many together with her desire to provide quality experiences and fun for its members, despite many challenges along the way.

On behalf of SoLO members, parents, carers and staff many congratulations Janet and we’re so pleased that your many achievements and deep commitment to support the lives of people with Learning Disabilities has been recognised in such a way.  We celebrate your honour  mindful that with the recent sad loss of your Dad, someone so special to you, is unable to celebrate with us, but we know MBE or no MBE he was a very proud Dad and rightly so.



Chair of SoLO
