The survey was undertaken on behalf of NT LIFE by Michele Spencer, Chief Officer, North Tyneside Community and Health Care Forum.
22 people took the time to complete the survey and some of the students were happy to meet Michele and share their personal journey.
The survey covered the traditional demographic questions as well as courses students attended, how long they waited and most importantly what benefits they had and continue to have from attending.
Conclusion of the survey
NT LIFE is designed for and run by people who understand how to support, encourage and empower. Students are at the heart of all of the courses and workshops and the design of what is on offer.
It is confidential, inclusive, informal and non-judgemental and this was echoed in many of the responses.
For most people there was a very short waiting time, and this is so important to the students. The impact from enrolment was clear, students felt in a safe place, nurtured and encouraged.
The responses from students reflect what they think of NT LIFE, how it is coordinated, how they feel and what they get out of attending.”…it’s a lifeline”.
