About Limitless London

We are a start-up young people’s charity that are passionate about helping disadvantaged young Londoners in the inner London area to succeed in life. Our aim is to accompany young people through adolescence, while helping them to reach their full potential, grow up healthy, be part of society and be prepared for their future. We want young people to achieve their dreams but if they don't, we want them to be able to reflect positively on what's happened and learn from it.

We will do this by providing youth activities, training workshops and programmes, where young people will have access to positive role models to help them develop their self-confidence and belief in themselves and help divert young people whose only choice is to enter into the wrong types of crowds, especially when they take a wrong turn or feel they have nowhere else to turn. We will guide and support young people and show them that there is a different path.

Help us to help young Londoners transform their lives for the better!
