Welcome to Voice North's monthly newsletter!

Find out about the upcoming opportunities in May plus the latest news and highlights!

Dear VOICE member,

We hope you're all well - and managing with the current ever-developing situation regarding COVID-19.

As we mentioned in our email last week, the VOICE team is working to deliver a programme of online activities starting next week, so that we can continue to connect and learn together. If you would like to play a role in shaping these activities, you can do so by taking part in the opportunity listed below.

We realise that it’s a very concerning time for everyone at the moment, and we would really like to check in weekly on how our members are doing. Through this, and along with the programme of online activities, we hope to get a better understanding of the challenges our community is facing, but also we can together understand more about the many positive solutions and innovations that are being adopted during this difficult time.

We would really appreciate it if you could spare a minute to respond by clicking here or the image below. All of your answers will be anonymised, and may form the basis of future reports which we will of course share with you.

Feel free to keep in touch any time - the whole team is online - by sending us an email at hello@voice-global.org.

Best wishes,

VOICE Head Office
