We are registered charity who's objectives are to help and encourage children between the ages of 4-16 years from low income families and children in deprived areas to gain access and the means to learn music and dance through workshops, events as well as instrument and tuition grants.
Our organization has 3 professional trustees who are very dedicated and involved in the work we do.
We offer workshops to children who fulfill this criteria in an effort to bridge the social divide that is present within the artistic areas of music and dance today.
We use these workshops and events to reach our targeted beneficiaries. We believe that children should not miss out on learning the arts because their parents are not financially or culturally able to provide them with the tuition or exposure.
We want to give opportunities to children who would ordinarily not be able to enjoy learning to dance or play music because of their families’ financial difficulties or their cultural upbringing.
We want to enable these children to learn a new skill and give them a positive experience or an activity that will keep them occupied and out of any danger that comes with not having hobbies or activities when you are growing up especially in deprived areas and will hopefully deter them from adolescent crime and delinquency.
Our work will improve the social and cultural experiences of young underprivileged children in England and Wales and will work towards reducing the cultural gap facing poorer children and giving more children opportunities that are not normally available to them throughout life and that are not provided within the schooling system.
With trustees from varied backgrounds and a CEO with relevant management, music and media industry experience and contacts we hope to make a big difference.
We believe that our aims are in line with the following priorities:
Addressing a significant gap in provision
Challenging convention, taking risks to address a difficult issue
Community support for disadvantaged youth
Arts and Culture
TO ADVANCE THE EDUCATION OF CHILDREN IN ENGLAND AND WALES IN THE ARTS OF DANCE AND MUSIC FOR THE PUBLIC BENEFIT IN PARTICULAR BY THE PROVISION OF MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS, FUNDING AND SUCH OTHER MEANS AS THE TRUSTEES MAY DETERMINE.

Is there any cost to our cause or supporters?
No, it's completely free for your cause and supporters. The only cost is to the retailer.
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Can any cause use GoRaise to fundraise?
Yes – any good cause (an organisation with unselfish goals) can use GoRaise to generate funds, from small community groups to national charities. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
How do we get paid?
You can choose to receive your money into a bank account or direct donation platform. We pay our causes every quarter and challengers monthly. We'll let you know once the payment has been sent. Please note: causes have to have at least £15 (and Challengers £2) in their account before we make payment
