Hi all,

In light of the announcement that schools and colleges will be closing their doors on Friday we feel it is only sensible for us to do the same with our current NT Life provision. This means that all face to face NT Life classes will be put on pause after today’s Creative Writing session.

However – this is definitely not the last you will be hearing from us! We know how important NT Life is for all participants, facilitators and staff. We are currently exploring options to hold regular online classes and get-togethers as well as offering some telephone befriending. We are also assembling some art and craft packs that can be distributed to those who are looking for activities to do from home.

On behalf of everyone at VODA I would like to thank you for your support and understanding. We’re all struggling to make sense of the situation we find ourselves in but, as always, I’m confident we will support each other to find a way through.

Please do get in touch if we can be of any assistance. In the meantime you might like to follow our NT Life Facebook page to keep in touch –


Best wishes,

Hannah Barugh
