Standard Nova heading bar

We offer courses, workshops, practical advice and volunteering opportunities to help you achieve your personal and professional goals.

Our services include courses, information, advice and guidance (IAG) and volunteering opportunities. Advisers in IAG offer a range of support and mentoring including finding individual grants, liaising with HMRC/ housing providers/ housing benefits officers/ job centre/ finding help or helping with immigration issues. Much of our work is closer to counselling, particularly for those with substance misuse and mental health issues. We work closely relationships with many other local organisations that rely upon us to refer their users and we also refer clients to them.

NOVA has a democratic approach where staff, users and volunteers are part of the ‘Nova family’ and all contribute to the development of the organisation.

We have a ‘no wrong door’ ethos and always do our best to help every person who walks in.

65% of staff were formerly students/ volunteers and 85% of the team live within walking distance. We are therefore part of the community and deeply committed to improving the lives of those around us. [is the above still true?]
