Spare a chair?

2 February 2016
Can you spare a chair? A young person we work with is in desperate need of a chair and a table - ideally folding. They have been housed but have only a mattress. A chair and table would make their space just a bit more like home and give them somewhere to eat - and perhaps read, or study, or just think about what might come next for them. **UPDATE*** Thanks everyone who got in touch! The very generous Micki W donated all of this instead of treating herself for her birthday (hero or what!) and the young person has taken it all home. How very wonderful!

Hope for Christmas

30 November 2015
Give £5 to make sure a young person doesn't feel alone this Christmas. For many of us, our memories of childhood Christmases will be filled with magic, excitment and anticipation. We remember writing letters to Father Christmas, longing for snow, and looking forward to Christmas holidays and the chance to have fun with family and friends. But for many local children and young people, Christmas feels very different. At No Limits, we supported 2,437 children and young people over the last year who were experiencing issues such as poverty, homelessness, neglect, abuse, and suicidal thoughts. For...

Jose's story: from homelessness to hope

2 November 2015
Jose, 25, came to No Limits because he was facing homelessness, dealing with depression, struggling with debt and had no family nearby to support him. He was turning to substances to make him feel better. With our support, Jose made some big changes in his life and now feels hopeful about the future. “I dealt with the depression in my own way - taking alcohol and drugs. I went from having a great six months to having a really bad six months. I lost my income. I began to accrue debt and was faced with eviction from my house. I didn’t really know how to cope. I was faced with losing everything...
