£250,000 Fundraising Target

Save the Family receives no government funding and relies solely on the charity and compassion of others. As a result fundraising is so important in helping us to carry out the vital work we do.

We are expecting 2019 to be our busiest year to date and as part of this we’re aiming to raise £250,000! It’s a huge challenge which is why we need YOUR help! We’ll keep you updated on our progress through the year. If you’d like to contribute find out how to do so below.

If you would like to get involved, take a look through our handy fundraising guide. You will find a range of fun activities that you can do and useful tips for raising money!

We would love for you to hold an event on behalf of Save the Family, and we’ll be there to help you every step of the way!
