THE RAWTHEY PROJECT
COMMUNITY INTEREST COMPANY
The Rawthey Project CIC is established for the benefit of the community and in particular (without limitation) the armed forces, emergency services and NHS communities.
The Rawthey Project CIC aims to support the most disadvantaged and vulnerable in our communities back to sustainable employment and independent living.
We provide a structure in which volunteers connect with beneficiaries who have become disadvantaged or vulnerable.
With the permission of the beneficiary, our peer mentors, who are supported by specialist clinical and social care teams, develop, coordinate & deliver a structured multi-agency framework led by care professionals.
Where required, we provide residential recovery for up to 3 months.
The residential recovery provides beneficiaries with the opportunity to rapidly change their environment and re-evaluate their situation with the support of peers and clinical proffessionals.
All support is led and guided by a trained and qualified Clinical Psychologist and/or other care professional.
Working alongside businesses, we support the transition back into sustainable employment, often at the end of a period of residential recovery.
Supported by peer mentors, the challenges of accommodation, transport & administration are overcome whilst concurrently liaising with employers to ensure that care needs are met alongside what are often robust employer HR protocols.

The UK Government accepts that 10% of service leavers struggle with the transition to civvy street.
Following recent high intensity wars in Iraq & Afghanistan psychological trauma is increasingly underpinning the difficulties that veterans and their families face.
All donations are used to support individuals, none are used to support operating costs.
We are an attractive grant funding organisation because we measure inputs and outputs therefore donors can measure the effect of their support.
We actively promote sponsorship because it personalises the investment and provides businesses with real-life case studies of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) expenditure.
