No Limits Celebrates Official Opening

CRASH was invited to help staff, volunteers and young people celebrate the opening of the new No Limits Drop in Centre in Southampton.

The need

No Limits is a charity which offers free and confidential information, advice, counselling, support and advocacy for children and young people under 26 who live in Southampton and Hampshire. All their services are confidential and free to young people. They rely on the support of volunteers, local partnerships and dedicated staff who help thousands of young people a year.

No Limits Drop in Centre moved from their old premises in Bernard Street, Southampton to a former Post Office on the city’s main High Street.

The solution

After visiting with CRASH Projects Advisor Charles Harris (Arcadis), CRASH awarded the charity a £9,000 cash grant to meet their funding shortfall.

How patrons helped

Fellow Patrons Knauf and Dulux Trade donated materials which meant this project was turned around from application to completion in a matter of weeks.

The social impact

The evening was an opportunity not just to officially ‘cut the ribbon’ at their smart new premises created with the help of CRASH, but also recognise the achievements of some of the young people who have benefitted from No Limits’ support.

25 year old Jose (pictured second from left) spoke about how his ‘guardian angel’ key worker had shown him compassion and understanding. With the help from No Limits, Jose is now studying for his dream job – a Digital Music Producer.

Other success stories included young mothers who had learnt to care properly for their babies, young men who had worked hard to beat their addictions and secure jobs and younger teenagers who had shown that, through counselling and support, that there is hope for a happy and positive future. Certificates were awarded by former Southampton FC players.
