About Us

Raw Potential is a registered local charity that has been operating in Canberra for 35 years and has supported over 10,000 most at risk and vulnerable young people (12-24) experiencing social disadvantage. The young people we are working with have complex needs and the depth of these needs is increasing. This year, the proportion of older young people has increased markedly during the COVID-19 pandemic – the effects on housing, unemployment, mental health support, issues related to domestic violence and alcohol/drugs making these young people more at-risk that before.

How your donation will help

Raw Potential relies on the Canberra public, local business sector and a number of long-term supporters such as the Snow Foundation to fund our highly effective mobile outreach service. On average it costs us $460.00 per young person to provide help with secure housing, good health and mental health and employment.

Achieving our $20,000 target will ensure this service continues to positively change the lives of an extra 42 of Canberra’s most at-risk and vulnerable youth, and give them a brighter future.
