Help Us RAW

There are many ways you can help us to help our women and men thrive.







RAW aims to assist individuals to reintegrate into society after lengthy terms in prison.  This is not straight forward as the issues around their lives and that of their children are often enormous and complex to manage.  RAW provides a new start for women and men where they can grow to become capable and confident people with the skills necessary to support their families financially and socially.


Help us to share the message of RAW and come and hear our women speak about their life journeys before RAW and how their journeys have significantly changed with RAW by attending one of our events.


Better still plan an event, with RAW as your speaker, and help us to share the message and raise funds for our women and men to transform them from being a social burden to contributing members of the community.


Please complete the form below if you would like to hold an event.
