Caryl works at No Limits as a Manager. Like many paid staff Caryl started off fifteen years by volunteering at No Limits as a Youth Worker. Caryl is one of four managers and is responsible, in particular, for those projects that focus on counselling, advocacy, child sexual exploitation and children’s rights. This includes our Just4U (supporting looked after children)) and Miss U Turn projects (children who have run away from home) U turn (those young people who are at risk being sexually exploited) and our free counselling service that supports a whole range of young people who have several different issues.
In a typical day Caryl needs to maintain contact with her two team leaders, monitor and evaluate the various projects, write reports (her favourite!) and attend meetings with a whole range of other organisations including other charities, statutory bodies such as Social Care and CAMHS (child and adolescent mental health).
Although Caryl is not a ‘front line’ worker now she still gets inspired by getting individual reports about young people who, through her teams work and support, have moved on and made real progress.
Caryl also has a life outside working for No Limits:
Biopic: Caryl is the No Limits vegan. When it comes to cultural issues she likes a whole range of music and films. She enjoys yoga, eating out, going on exotic holidays. At work she is very focused and determined to get the best for the young people that she supports. Caryl assures us however, that she does have a compassionate and giving side to her nature 🙂
