2014 ForcesWatch appeal

26 January 2014

Donate £25 or more and
we will send you a
FREE COPY of our
forthcoming publication
on militarisation in UK society.

With the new year and many projects ahead of us, we are making an appeal for funds to get us off to flying start. ForcesWatch is funded by grant-making trusts which cover most of our costs of employing three very part-time members of staff and running a small office on a shoestring but we still need another £3500 to support the following areas of our work up to April:

  • an extra day a week for our Education Campaigner to continue to challenge the Government’s promotion of ‘military ethos’ in schools  
  • an extra day a week for our Advocacy Worker who is leading our growing campaign to raise the age of armed forces recruitment to 18
  • publish a booklet on Militarisation in UK society, written by David Gee

In the coming few months we will also be launching the film on the Military and Young People that we have been working on with a group of young filmmakers, researching the impact of WW1 on the youngest soldiers, publishing a report on the military's involvement in universities, and developing our work with veterans' groups.
This is an exciting time for ForcesWatch and we hope you will want to be involved, by supporting us financially or in other ways.  We are very grateful for any support you can give us.
To make a donation, please make a payment online or send us a cheque.
If you donate £25 or more, we will send you a FREE COPY of our forthcoming publication on militarisation in UK society as soon as it becomes available.
If you would like more information about our work, please don't hesitate to get in touch and we will be glad to answer any questions you may have.
