Beyond Limits aims to provide a place of peace or retreat to relieve anyone in poverty or distress by reason of youth, age, ill-health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantage by providing the facilities to allow individuals and families to spend time away from home to reconnect with themselves, their families or with others.
We also promote learning through the continued development of individual capabilities, competencies, skills and understanding.
Beyond Limits meets the needs of the most disadvantaged people from local communities across County Durham but primarily South Durham, this includes those living in poverty, young people disengaged from their families, those struggling with drug and alcohol misuse, and those with disabilities in need of some respite. Although the backgrounds and situations of these people can be very different, many of the challenges they face are similar. These can include low self-confidence, self-esteem and resilience; low education/life skills; lack of support mechanisms and social networks; lack of motivation; poor communication skills; lack of career path and understanding of options available; mental health problems, anxiety and depression; experience of offending and substance misuse; and disengagement from community and society
Beyond Limits aims to:
- Meet the needs of the most disadvantaged people from local communities across County Durham through emergency aid
- We promote learning and provide educational or craft sessions, either directly by fully trained Beyond Limits staff
