Funding awarded to continue substance misuse service

We're excited to announce that we've been awarded with funding from Southampton City Council to contnue our Drug, Alcohol, Support and Health (DASH) service for the next 5 years!

The service will provide unlimited one-to-one support sessions and psychosocial activities that will help users to break down their routines through activities such as sport, cooking and therapeutic groups. Young people can also access support from the DASH service for opiate replacement recovery in partnership with the adult service CGL, blood born virus testing and health and wellbeing sessions, as well as support for young offenders.

Robyn Parker-Hales, DASH Service Manager, says "We're really pleased that we have a continuation of the service to support young people in Southampton around drugs and alcohol. We're taking this opportunity to strengthen our existing partnerships with the view to improve outcomes for the young people we support."

Garden makeover

Vounteers from The Prince's Trust and British Gas have completely transformed our garden at our head office in Southampton!

The volunteers fundraised for the plants and tools, drew up plans to re-design the garden and then they worked together to clear the old fencing panels, put in raised beds, plant new vegetables and dot some solar lights around the garden. They also painted our benches to make them more colourful.

Darcie, a team member on the Princes Trust Team Programme, delivered by Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “'I am really glad I got to do this project as No Limits have helped me massively and it was a way of giving something back. If I'd had the opportunity to use these facilities while I was supported by No Limits, it would have helped me even more.”

Thank you so much to the team at The Prince's Trust and British Gas for all your hard work and we can't wait for the garden to be used as a therapeutic space for our young people in their groups and activities.

A thank you from Polygon

Kerry and Flower from our sexual health team have had wonderful feedback from Polygon school after completing a Girl Talk Boy Talk course with their students.

The staff at the Polygon school wanted to show their appreciation for how accommodating Kerry and Flower had been adapting the sessions to meet the students’ learning needs.

Girl Talk Boy Talk is a single sex educational programme for year 9 students that's delivered in schools across Southampton, Portsmouth and Hampshire. The programme gives the students the opportunity to ask the questions they want the answers to and make positive lifestyle choices around relationships and sexual health.

Therapeutic journals

We've had some wonderful personalised notebooks made by The Wright Stationery for a group of young women that we support who have been victims of sexual exploitation.

Director of The Wright Stationery, Monique heard about our work with a small number of young women who are victims of child sexual exploitation and she was inspired to do something to help them by using her skills as a stationery maker. Monique decided to make some journals with inspirational quotes and pages for colouring to help these young women to document their hopes, dreams and goals.

Thank you so much to Monique for your donation and for supporting these young women in this way.
