Hello and welcome to the first edition of our 2CC newsletter of 2022 - and a very Happy New Year to you all. Here we will share some exciting connectivity news and general updates from our team.

2022 - Make it your Best Year

As we step into the 3rd year of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is not uncommon to feel apprenehsive about the year ahead. However, the saying is so true that life is what you make of it and looking back over the last year we can see massive improvements in vaccination numbers, business continuity, and most importantly - hope.
At the beginning of each year, our team find it extremely useful to sit down for an hour or two and plan out our personal goals for the year, as well as ones for our business to achieve. Doing this and thinking really deeply about the things that matter is a great way to reconnect with yourself after Christmas and New Year, getting us hyped up and setting the tone for the New Year!
Why not have a go with your team and review all of the great things you achieved in 2021, as well as reaching for the stars and planning out your 2022 in order to be as successful as you can be!
Some top tips for goal-setting for 2022 that we have found to be incredibly useful can be found below:

We've Got our Head in the Cloud

The start of a new year is a better time than any to implement new changes, which is why we are sharing with you some recent updates on our brand. You may have noticed from our social media pages that our logo has now changed, and this is to more appropriately convey our commitment to providing future-proof comms, and more specifically to emphasise Cloud technology.

With the Great British Switch Off in 2025 approaching very quickly, we would like to reiterate our commitment to you and keeping your businesses up to date with the latest connectivity. After the 2025 switch off, all voice calls will need to be made over the internet which means services like Future Office will be high in demand as we approach the deadline.
For assistance in making your move to the Cloud in as timely a manner as possible, please contact your Account Manager on 03456 200 200 to discuss and map out a tailored plan for your business.

Customer Spotlight - Support in Mind Scotland

This month we are delighted to feature our friends at Support in Mind Scotland. Since bringing them on board in 2017 we have been able to provide simple cost-savings for phone/broadband services at 14 locations across Scotland as well as installing a private fibre leased line and a new VoIP phone system for the Edinburgh head office and providing over 120 mobiles for staff up and down the country.

Support in Mind Scotland was initially part of the UK charity National Schizophrenia Fellowship, set up in 1972, however in 1984 became an independent Scottish Charity, National Schizophrenia Fellowship (Scotland), and this is still the registered company name. However, in 2010 they changed their operating name to Support in Mind Scotland to fully convey the scope of mental health conditions to which they provide support.
They provide vital support to 1,700 people experiencing poor mental health, as well as their carers and families, across 28 projects across Scotland. They offer one-to-one emotional support, confidence building, self-management support, crisis intervention, vocational/skills training, employability building and benefits assistance. Several of their resources boast subsidised cafés and run activity groups such as art, music, yoga, walking, Tai Chi, radio, photography and woodwork. The aim of these is to teach people new skills, encourage expression, provide companionship and improve confidence.
Support in Mind Scotland has set up and runs the National Rural Mental Health Forum (www.ruralwellbeing.org) which now has over 200 member organisations dedicated to tackling mental health by raising awareness, furthering research, sharing best practice, collaboration and informing policy makers. They believe it is everyone’s business to tackle mental health.

Their partnership with Mental Health UK sees them do an abundance of work in schools across the country also, helping pupils to equip themselves with the tools and knowledge needed to cope and work through mental health related issues they may encounter.

“We'd love to hear from people keen to support our cause. For anyone looking to fundraise, please contact our Community Fundraising Officer Iain at imitchell@supportinmindscotland.org.uk. For volunteering enquiries our Volunteering Manager Alexis Cumming can be reached at acumming@supportinmindscotland.org.uk
