Because family life matters

Other fundraising ideas

Holding your own fundraising event is great fun and amazingly rewarding, and you’ll be helping to strengthen family life across the UK.

Other fundraising ideas

What’s more, you have complete freedom to choose what you do. Being part of something extraordinary and raising money at the same time is hugely rewarding. You will meet new people and have fun. And you’ll feel an enormous amount of satisfaction knowing that you are helping us to support families that are struggling to cope because of life’s challenges.

The money raised will help to strengthen marriages, support bereaved parents, help parents whose child has additional needs and run holidays for single parent families.

  • £5 can help us to give a free resource to a family who are struggling with life challenges
  • £20 can pay for a bereaved parent to attend one of our hope-giving support days
  • £50 can help subsidise a family-building break for a single parent family
  • £350 can help us to train a volunteer to deliver relationship education sessions for new parents
