The UK's leading Shared Parenting charity

Fundraise

Below are some ways to raise funds for FNF. We appreciate any help you can give us and are very grateful for all money raised!

Fundraising Events

Isle of Wight Race Team

There are countless events you can participate in to help raise money for FNF. Whether it's your local fun run or even the full 26 miler – you can raise money to create a better future for families. Previous Members have run 10k races, climbed Mount Toubkal, walked the Leeds and Liverpool canal, skydived and put on an FNF charity rock night. Hopefully their successes will inspire you to challenge yourself!

 

If you are taking part in any event and would like to use this as an opportunity to raise money for FNF, please contact us. We will support you with your fundraising efforts and provide you with a T-shirt and publicity material where appropriate.

 

Start fundraising with JustGiving

You can set up a JustGiving page using the button on the left. Setting up a JustGiving page takes less than a minute. You will then be able to email your friends and family with a link to the page, and all the administration (including collecting Gift Aid) is taken care of for both you and FNF.

  • A leave to remove case that has gone terribly wrong and the child has been abducted. There is risk of harm if identified and almost certain harm from losing a father. Furthermore, it seems unlikely appeasement will work and doing nothing will certainly not deter others from such damaging action. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6593333/Ukrainian-wife-millionaire-Russian-flees-London-mansion-two-young-children.html Please support FNF by liking this post, sharing it, following us, registering for free on our website, making a donation or becoming a member.
  • A Whitehall source said that Rudd wanted “universal credit to receive a fresh parliamentary mandate and be personally sure the system is working in the interests of every claimant”. Let's hope that the "every claimant" bit means that they will ensure that Universal Credit takes into account Child Maintenance payments made by those in receipt of state benefits. Too many are now asked to make unaffordable payments and are driven to despair. If you are affected by this, ask your MP to raise with Amber Rudd and please let us know how you get on on admin@fnf.org.uk. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2019/jan/05/amber-rudd-to-delay-universal-credit-roll-out-pilot-study Please support our work by sharing this post, liking our page, registering for free, becoming a member or making a donation online.
  • We spoke today to a law journalist from Malta. It's not that they don't have any problems to overcome, but enforcement of child arrangement orders is not one of them. It is a criminal offence not to comply with such contact orders. People get fined and at third offence imprisoned. Most people are not imprisoned as orders are generally obeyed.
  • LegalAid cuts have been indiscriminate and destructive. They have also fuelled false allegations as only accusers get help. Lack of access to justice is not justice. One side being represented and the other struggling alone is not justice. Failures to enforce orders is also a failure of justice. The system needs a complete redesign so fewer go to court in the first place. The incentives for conflict must stop and shared care must become the default. There are no prefect systems around the developed world, but few fail as badly as ours. It is good that a former minister is recognising that parents are giving up their fight for their children because of the lack of support offered - the government initiatives were always wholly inadequate. https://www.theguardian.com/law/2018/dec/26/revealed-legal-aid-cuts-forcing-parents-to-give-up-fight-for-children If you need help, please call our Helpline 0300 0300 363 or attend one of our local meetings.

  • At FNF we hear many sad stories of children who won't be able to see their dads or, in some cases mums and often grandparents too. These stories increase in number and intensity at this time of year that we so strongly associate with family time and children. Inevitably, when things go wrong we think of what could have been, the joy, the laughter and fun. If you are seeing your children in the coming days, we hope you have a lovely time. If we helped you to achieve this outcome then please feel free to share your story with us (at admin@fnf.org.uk). If your children won't be seeing you in the coming days or weeks then please stay positive - your children need you to be healthy and be there for them for when they do see you or hear from you, so please try not to let your upset get in the way of putting them first. They need to know that both parents love them and that they, or at least one of them, warmly supports them having both their parents in their lives. If your children are not with you, perhaps write to them or if you can't then write to them and keep the letter - one day they may well be happy to know that they were in your thoughts all the time. Also, if you are alone, do contact friend and family and resolve to get help by calling our Helpline or attending one of our local meetings. You can also get involved by helping others next year by volunteering support at our branches, Helpline or national office. Whatever your situation, we wish you warm season’s greetings and a Happy New Year! We include here a video we shared last year created by Andy Remic. For those who are new or did not see it or anyone wanting to see it again. If you know anyone who is having a particularly difficult time please let them know you are there for them.If you are struggling yourself then do speak to Samaritans on freephone 116 123. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnahc1hjWn0
