Every week we support around 250 clients.

Our work is aimed at building a more cohesive society through improving:

  • Social mobility – equality of opportunity to get ahead
  • Social inclusion – the degree to which citizens can participate on an equal footing
  • Social capital – resources that result from cooperation for a common end

Over the past 5 years Nova has:

ROOTS: Served over 3,490 community members
