No Limits celebrated its 30th birthday yesterday, with a breakfast attended by senior representatives from organisations across Hampshire, Portsmouth, the Isle of Wight and Southampton, young people, funders and partners. As part of the event, the charity premiered its powerful new film – Four Stories – made by four young people whose lives have been changed by No Limits. 

The packed Advice Centre heard from Mike Harris, CEO of Southampton City Council, the Leader of Southampton Council, Councillor Satvir Kaur and Tim Davis, Associate Director Children’s Mental Health Transformation in Hampshire, about the vital support provided by No Limits over the last 30 years. Last year the charity supported over 7,000 young people, including 1,629 through its Advice and Wellbeing Hub, 1,146 in hospital Emergency Departments, 2,119 through school drop-ins. They supported over 4,000 young people with emotional wellbeing, 985 with housing, 1,142 with their finances. 

Mike Harris, CEO of Southampton City Council said “We need agile, innovative, creative organisations like No Limits because young people are the future of our cities. No Limits is a vital institution for individuals, neighbourhoods and our entire community – an anchor for young people in our city.” 

Satvir Kaur, Leader of Southampton City Council, said “Your staff have the passion and commitment to not only change people’s lives but save them. Happy Birthday, congratulations and thank you.”  

Tim Davis, Associate Director: Children’s Mental Health Transformation said “No Limits makes an important, additional contribution to NHS pathways of care for children and young people. You help young people feel safe and positive about the future, encouraging their growth and hope. The local NHS are fortunate to have community and voluntary sector partners like No Limits to work with.” 

Natalie Webb, CEO said “30 years is a great milestone for No Limits to reach. Over this time,we’ve helped thousands upon thousands of young people, giving them life changing support. Children and young people often come to us when they are at their lowest point and it’s our job to help them get to where they want to be. I am immensely proud of the work we do here, offering a vital service and a lifeline to so many. As well as looking back and celebrating all our hard work, we’re also looking forward to the next 30 years, where our goal is to keep offering and improving our high standards of support for young people. The need for our services has never been greater.” 

No Limits is experiencing unprecedented levels of need amongst young people. As a charity, it relies on individual donations for much of its work. To donate go to Donate to No Limits (Become A No Limits Champion) (
