Our Story

I am a Royal Marine widow and fundraise for this amazing charity. I have received first hand the work they provide and i now work hard to give back and help other families in my position.Forces Support is a fairly newly established charity, developed to fulfil a desperate need for bereaved military families who have lost a loved one as a result of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan or while serving during this term.  

Forces Support is the only charity in the UK to offer this unique hands-on, practical support to such families; they carry out general maintenance work for the family of the lost family member – work which, however small, is often left uncompleted as the pain of loss is just too hard to bear.

The UK’s military roles in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001 have not been without their toll, with 453 members of our Armed Forces losing their lives in combat in Afghanistan alone and over 2,500 in total.  The majority of those killed were young men, many with young families, all with wives, girlfriends, parents and children whose own lives have been torn apart as a result of the loss.  

Forces Support was created to help make a relatively small but often life-changing difference to the lives of those left behind, families often struggle with simply the day to day tasks of general maintenance throughout the home and garden and what are small jobs needing completed turn into larger projects in time. These then become a stark reminder of how a family is not coping and their mental state can suffer incredibly.

Forces Support provides the solution to this, completing garden makeovers, general decorating and more recently Remembrance areas in the garden and children’s play areas, all development that have come from their vast experience with bereaved military families. They are now an MOD partner however funding for their second support team from the LIBOR fund has now run out and they are back to an 8 month waiting list of over 40 families waiting for their support.

Over the past 3 years they have supported 65 of the families from the 453 killed in action deaths in Afghanistan and over 200 families in total. They have over 40 families waiting for their support and it will take them 8 months to do this with other families applying all the time.

Got any Questions

See our FAQs or visit the Help Centre for more resources

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
