Service Description

  • RAW operates a large wood workshop, production facility, wood recycling service and retail outlet
  • they create a positive, thriving environment helping raise self-esteem, enhance confidence, end isolation, and create a powerful sense of belonging
  • 85% of their team have faced disadvantages and prejudice (mental health, addiction recovery, ex-offenders, military veterans, young people who have become disengaged, CAMHS, etc), and some are still battling these issues
  • their mantra is ‘be exceptional, not the exception’: if you’ve lived with or overcome disadvantage, you are, by definition, exceptional
  • their ambition is to promote self-enabled change and increased happiness, helping people re-set their compass and realise their significant core assets, supporting them towards whatever their version of ‘exceptional’ is
