ABOUT US

Get to know us

Raw Material helps vulnerable people develop skills, confidence and connections that enhance their lives, and improve their employment prospects.

At our studios in Brixton, we develop creative talent, teach and play music, and provide access to audio and video mixing and editing facilities. Disadvantaged young people, and adults with mental and physical challenges, benefit from training and mentoring that open routes to work.  Through participation, practice and performance in a range of music projects, they develop team, leadership and self-management abilities.

We’ve been making music for more than 20 years and have helped thousands of people create better lives. We seek sustained involvement from the people we work with, expecting them to contribute to our choice of projects, and help shape the direction of our charity. Their views, ambitions and needs are at the heart of everything we do. Most people are referred to us by a care counsellor or occupational therapist, or through their school or council, but individuals are welcome to contact us too.

“We are a project that combines young people with professional artists – musicians, DJs, filmmakers – collaborating to make great things happen in urban areas and areas of need.” – Tim Brown, CEO of Raw Material
