We are sad to announce that NEVRlabs is closing its doors for good on 14 August.

Despite great feedback and a variety of notable successes and partnerships, this was sadly not enough to generate the level of income needed to effectively support Alice House Hospice, the charity who opened NEVRlabs as a fundraising initiative.

The ongoing impacts of COVID and the cost of living crisis continue to be felt by businesses, families and charities and these challenges show no sign of going away. We were also due to be affected by the closure of the Government’s Kickstart Scheme in September, which provided funding for many of our staff.

Resources from NEVRlabs will be either repurposed within the Hospice or sold. We will continue to offer VR experiences to Hospice patients for entertainment and wellbeing, which was one of the project’s original aims.

However, in these difficult times, we must constantly review our financial commitments and priorities. The decision to close NEVRlabs was the most financially responsible thing to do in order to protect the future of the Hospice, which will always be our main priority.

This is sad and disappointing news to share with you; we want to thank all of our staff, customers and everyone else who has joined us on this journey.

We hope to see you again soon and that your support of local Hospice care will continue. 

*All bookings due to take place on or after 15 August will be refunded in full. Apologies for inconvenience and disappointment.
