New roof for homelessness charity means they can focus on what they do best
No Limits for Southampton’s Vulnerable Youth
After months of planning, weeks of refurbishment, and the huge task of packing up and moving from their old building on Bernard Street, No Limits Drop in Centre in Southampton is back up and running thanks to support from CRASH.
Vulnerable young people can come to the centre for information, advice, and support on any issues that they are facing – there’s no need to make an appointment. They can also see counsellors in purpose-built counselling rooms.
On their first day of reopening, the No Limits team saw 14 young people who came for advice, four for counselling, two for their Work Club, and four who received support about drugs and alcohol from their DASH service.
Other facilities on offer include free internet use, telephones, shower and laundry facilities for young people who are homeless, pregnancy testing and chlamydia screening.
The new centre has been made possible thanks to a cash grant of £9,000 from CRASH to meet their funding shortfall.
How patrons helped
CRASH Patrons Knauf and Dulux Trade donated materials which meant this project was turned around from application to completion in record time.
The social impact
No Limits expect to support around 1,200 young people in the Southampton area in their first year.
