About No Limits
No Limits is based in Southampton, an area with higher than average rates for teenage pregnancy and hospital admittance for underage drinkers.
No Limits provides an open entry point for young people with three drop-in centres across the city, giving help, advice and counselling in a safe and friendly environment.
It gets young people involved in the development of services and many have gone on to volunteer or work for the charity. No Limits uses its volunteers in very imaginative ways, for example, its ‘Bright Beginnings’ programme recruits older mums to mentor teenage parents.
What the judges thought
'No Limits is creative in the way it addresses young people’s needs. It is able to target general issues such as sexual health and alcohol use as well as provide focused support for the most vulnerable. It has a good reach within its community and is achieving good results through its strong partnerships.'
