Sunshine Friends is a national registered charity based in Wales, with branches in Bristol and the West Midlands.
Our aim is to raise awareness and provide services for people with disabilities. We currently have several projects that we work with on a daily basis.
A social network with chat rooms, forum and lots of advice and inspirational storys for people with disabilities and for their parents or carers
Working Friends - a service that works with people of employment age who have disabilities, giving them the ability to have a digital and/or video CV made for them. It is a very sad fact that very few employers will even both to interview a prospective employee who has a disability. With the video CV our clients are able to show any employer just how good they are at their chosen career
Hyder Cymru - a peer-to-peer mentoring programme working with young people with learning disabilities who are approaching the end of their school life. For many this transistional period was stressful and difficult, for someone who has additional needs it can be an extremely distressing time. The charity employers young people between the ages of 18 and 23 who are all trained as specialist youth workers to help young people through this stage, listening to their problems, their hopes and dreams and then helping them make the first move into their chosen next step, be it further education, training or employment.
We are also in discussion with a large charity that provides help to the aged. Our research has shown that after people with learning disabilities reach the age of 65, there is no provisions available to them. We are currently looking of ways to work with the other charity to get that changed.

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
