DONATE & SHOP
HELP KEEP DOORS OPEN TO EVERYONE
We’re a fully registered charity, and welcome donations to help fund the work we do supporting young people from low-income backgrounds into the creative industries.
You can make a direct donation, or buy any of our merchandise, the proceeds of which go to Creative Mentor Network.
Help young people make connections
Research by the Gatbsy Foundation shows that young people who make 4 or more professional connections before they leave full-time education are 5 times likely to be employed.
Our work helps young people build their social capital and make these connections.
Budget cuts in education mean that schools are more stretched than ever. The programmes we run are free for young people and schools. But places on our programme are limited by the number of mentors that our partner businesses choose to sponsor.
With your donations, we can offer more young people places on our programmes.
Access to creativity
The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport has reported a creative industries’ “jobsboom”, with employment growing at four times the rate of the UK workforce as a whole.
From an equality standpoint, if we fail to make the creative industries seem open to all now, we’re excluding a part of our society from affluence in the future.
