Vita Nova is able to offer school talks from people recovering from problem drugs/alcohol use through the telling of their story. This is followed by a Q & A session.
Vita Nova has been providing high quality preventative drug and alcohol educational work within schools and colleges for over ten years. This work enables young people to develop an understanding of the impact alcohol and drug use can have on people's lives.

Feedback from a member of staff at a school:

School talks can last up to an hour. Each talk is tailored to be appropriate for year groups. Call us now for cost based on your requirements.
