DEVELOPING YOUNG TALENT
Providing access and opportunity for young people in the arts, music and media.
Helping others build a career.
Enhancing opportunity and changing lives through music and media.
Raw Material’s mission is to improve the lives of young people and their economic position, their opportunities, progression and development, including mental and physical health issues.
From our base in Brixton, we provide a range of training, mentoring and professional arts projects to develop creative talent, learn music and media skills, build confidence in a working environment and find routes into employment.
One of our founding principles is to make young people the centre of our organisation. Wherever possible, those accessing our projects and programmes are encouraged to join the Raw Material team and develop their leadership skills and experience. Their views and issues inform everything from project delivery to group decision making and steering the ongoing development of the charity.
We provide the highest level of service with the best resources possible. Our mission is to create a professional, user friendly, safe and inspiring learning environment, fine-tuned to provide outcomes that make a difference to our participants and have real social, communal and economic impact.
