Meet our new fundraising volunteer

27 August 2015
Volunteering with No Limits has been something that I’ve wanted to do for a while as it’s aimed at young people – and I myself am a teenager. So, I thought why not find out what it is like working amongst people of similar age as me and help them in the best way possible, whether it be counselling or promoting activities for the young people to participate in. As part of volunteering with No Limits, I am most interested in fundraising and marketing . I believe that promotion is a key marketing aspect of any business and it’s especially easy nowadays to get your organisation heard due to...

We're now open at 13 High Street Southampton!

11 August 2015
Yesterday we celebrated the opening of our new City drop in centre on Southampton High Street. After months of planning, weeks of refurbishment, and the huge task of packing up and moving from our old centre on Bernard Street, it was great to welcome our first young people through our brand new doors.

Making a Difference: Abbie's Story

30 July 2015
Abbie’s Story: 20 year old Abbie* had originally attempted to come to a No Limits drop-in centre but found herself too anxious and nervous to ever physically step into the building. One of our youth workers saw Abbie hovering outside the No Limits building and went to sit with her.

My experience as an intern at No Limits

22 July 2015
My name is Florian and I come all the way from the North East of France. I have just spent my last two months working as an intern at No Limits and it was a great experience. I had to do an internship in a foreign country as part of my studies and I decided to choose No Limits because I wanted to gain some skills in oral and written English, but also because working in a charity was the opportunity to work in a friendly environment. It is always difficult to integrate in a foreign country but I received a very nice welcome by all the team so it made me feel more confident. Richard, my tutor...
