Young people represent Southampton at Labour Party Conference

It was great to have some of our young people at the Labour Party Conference in Brighton on Sunday discussing mental health and human rights with other youth rights advocates.

The young people spoke with Julie Hilling, John McDonnell and Ed Miliband about mental health services and the need for more youth support across the country. They also had the opportunity to share their own experiences of mental health, as well as ask MPs and other attendees to make pledges as part of the #MyRightsMyMind petition, a campaign launched by Make Our Rights Reality which promises to build new solutions to transform mental healthcare in the UK.

Our first Supporter and Volunteer Event

We had a brilliant evening at our first supporter and volunteer thank you event earlier this month. If it weren’t for our donors and volunteers, we wouldn’t be able to transform the lives of some of the most vulnerable children and young people in Southampton.

Congratulations to Katrina Lush who won the first ever Annabel Hodgson Award for her service to No Limits. Our thanks also goes to our wonderful supporters at Mayfield Bowling Club, Sienna Construction, Hampshire Open Studios and Parkewood School of Dance who have collectively raised £5,337 for us over the past few months.

Young Carers Visit Paulton's Park

Our Young Carers had a great day trip at Paulton's Park back in August!

The trip was an opportunity for the young carers to enjoy time with friends and have some respite from their caring responsibilities. Here's some quotes from the day:

"It was a fantastic day, can't wait to come again!"
"I made a really good friend, I think she's really nice"
"I had lots of freedom and was able to make friends"

Connecting children and young people to the heart of our City

We're excited to be a part of the University of Southampton's new consortium that will enable children and young people to become more connected to arts and culture in the City.

Young people involved in the project will help to produce a Young People's Manifesto and Map to help create a 'Child-Friendly Southampton'.

Can you help?

Each year we hold a Christmas meal for the children and young people we support which, for many who attend, will be their only chance to celebrate Christmas.

This a wonderful opportunity for the young people to have fun together, enjoy a delicious meal and receive a gift too.

This year we’d love for you to help us by donating Christmas gifts for the young people we support, specifically those aged 16-25. Gifts could include items such as books, selection boxes, hats, socks, key rings, mugs, packs of cards, toiletry sets, jewellery, makeup, games or portable speakers/headphones.

Alternatively, you could make a donation towards the Christmas gifts for the children and young people.
