Freedom Foundation is an organisation which empowers children and young people to explore their individuality, learn to value themselves and build their confidence using creative arts. Our mission is to educate and motivate the minds of young people, to explore who they are and who they could be whilst unlocking their talents and nurturing their creative individuality through our development programmes. Our programmes use the music industry as a platform to explore a world away from social media and build resilience and abilities to deal with the emotional challenges facing them. We teach children to have a 'safe' relationship with social media and recognise usage can have an affect on their mental well-being.

We take a holistic approach to educating, motivating and empowering children to participate, share their feelings and ideas. Our programmes teach young people to value themselves without comparison, equip them to cope better with difficult circumstances, preventing them from experiencing common mental health problems before they become serious issues. Our vision is to improve the emotional and mental wellbeing of children and young people by inspiring them to believe that creative thinking can lead to achieving anything.

We provide essential education helping children to understand the risks of inappropriate choices online and reinforcing the positive benefits of using technology to express themselves. Not only do we provide a mentoring opportunity, but we also offer support to parents, carers and teachers when understanding the many pressures children are faced with in today’s modern society. Freedom Foundation provides a network of support that enables children and their families to find strategies that will help alleviate any anxieties they may be facing, or depression they may be enduring, giving children access to the programs we offer, allows for the release of their inner capabilities and a voice to express self-belief.

Our goal is to promote children’s self-confidence and build their resilience and aspirations using a series of creative, thought provoking programmes which unlock their hidden talents and nurture their creative individuality.

Our ethos is that every child and every young person deserves the chance to explore who they are and who they could be.
