Support Solihull’s Zero Suicide pledge

Solihull Council will be launching the ‘Solihull Zero Suicide Pledge’ on Monday 10 September to support World Suicide Prevention Day and we need your help to promote the Pledge.

The Pledge is all about looking after family, friends and colleagues, becoming more aware of any concerning changes and asking if they are ok.  There is free online training to help people spot the warning signs in others and details of support services are provided.

Please encourage your staff/volunteers and customers to sign up to the Pledge – our Communications Toolkit will help you do this. As an organisation you can sign the Pledge too at: https://solihull.mylifeportal.co.uk/zerosuicide

Suicide is a tragedy for those taking their own life and for their families and friends.  Whilst Solihull has a lower suicide rate compared to the national average, each death is one too many.  The Pledge is part of our action plan to reduce suicides and achieve our long-term ambition of ‘zero suicides’ in Solihull.

Colebridge Accountancy is now Quickbooks certified

At Colebridge Accountancy we are constantly looking at ways of improving the quality of the accountancy and bookkeeping function across organisations in the sector. One particular focus of late is on the various bookkeeping packages available on the market.

With options such as Xero, Sage and Quickbooks on offer, choosing a package based on cost, user friendliness and reporting functionality shouldn’t be a quick decision.

Whilst each of these solutions have some great features our experience is that one size does not fit all. Quickbooks however comes pretty close and provides a robust facility for recording transactions, managing taxes and producing financial reports and it is for that reason we decided to become Quickbooks Online certified.

This means that our clients can be confident that we have undertaken a training programme in Quickbooks online and completed an exam that ensures that we are up-to-date with its features. It also means that we are now well placed to advise on whether or not Quickbooks is suitable for your organisation.

As well as providing a FREE consultation to organisations operating in Solihull we also have access to discounted licenses for newcomers which are available on a first come first served basis. Colebridge also provides accountancy and bookkeeping support as well as payroll services to the sector so do get in touch if you think that we might be able to support you.
