What We Do
No-Limits Access Network (NAN) provides long-term and persistent support to help young people achieve their potential irrespective of their behaviour, attitude or circumstances. There is a total commitment to the young person worked out in love as a determined act of will that looks beyond any challenging behaviour or attitudes into the real needs of the young person.
NAN works to resolve the educational and/or skills deficiencies resulting from interruption/disruption to their academic progress due to factors such as disadvantaged backgrounds, poor behaviour, illness, loss of a parent, loss of a child, teen pregnancy, post-abortion distress, etc.
NAN works with each young person and provides personalised holistic support, resourcing and practical help tailored to the specific needs of the young person. The support is not time-limited so as to provide stability and continuity for the young person.
In addition, NAN raises aspiration through visits, outings and opportunities that show the young person a world beyond theirs.

Educational support – numeracy, literacy, and various subjects
