New project to address rising loneliness
22nd January 2019
No Limits will launch an exciting new project for vulnerable young people this month, thanks to a £70,000 grant from the #iwill Fund.
The project is expected to support over 200 young people who are suffering high levels of loneliness due to the complex issues in their lives. In turn, with the help of No Limits, these young people will engage in social action to tackle loneliness for themselves and their peers.. By the end of the two year project, it is hoped that many young people in Southampton will understand more about loneliness and youth workers will be better equipped to tackle it.
The #iwill Fund is a £40 million joint investment from the Big Lottery Fund, using National Lottery funding, and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to support young people to access high quality social action opportunities. The Co-op Foundation is acting as a match funder.
No Limits is one of 16 projects supported in this latest round of funding from Co-op Foundation.
