UNCANNED believes that everyone should have a fair opportunity in life, and agencies and brands in our position should make a real effort to include those from different backgrounds, and give something back.

This is one of the reasons why we are proud to work alongside the charity UpRising. They’re a national youth leadership development organisation championing the critical issues surrounding diversity, social mobility and equality.

Their mission is to break the cycle of unrepresentative power in the UK, by developing new, community- minded and socially-conscious leaders; so that our future decision-makers truly represent our diverse communities. All funds raised through sponsorship of the UNCANNED will go directly to UpRising.
