WHAT’S NEW? | RAW POTENTIAL OUTREACH VAN

Following the success of the Raw Potential Long Lunch held on 2 August 2019, we are pleased to advise that we have secured our group of Champions and Roady Sponsors for 2019, which will ensure the running costs are covered for the first 12 months of operation. Unfortunately, the arrival of our van has been delayed by customs and is now scheduled to arrive in early 2020. We look forward to inviting you to the official launch early in 2020. Stay tuned for details!

It has been a very busy time at Raw Potential supporting many young people who are currently homeless or at risk of homelessness in the ACT.

We are honoured that young people feel comfortable to turn to us for support. At the same time however, we are overwhelmed with the reality of the number of young people who are sleeping rough in Canberra.

Golden Canberra Day for Raw Potential

Cockington Green event

On a golden Canberra Day morning, the queues waiting to get into Cockington Green Gardens was a portent of things to come for Raw Potential Canberra (formerly Youth Care Canberra) and Canberra City Care, the two charities benefiting from the attraction’s 2019 annual gold coin donation entry.
