Who are we?

The ‘You raise me up charity’ was founded by the late Jane Brooks and her husband Fraser in June 2011. The charity’s sole purpose is to raise funds to support families that have suffered the loss of a teenage child.


On 3rd May 2011 Fraser and Jane’s beautiful daughter Megan Brooks collapsed and died suddenly. As parents of Megan they found themselves in desperate need of comfort from those that had experienced the same loss and to see how they had coped and got through such a terrible time.

The aim of the charity is to be able to provide compassion, support and simply to be able to say “we totally understand” rather than “we cannot imagine what you are going through”.

The financial strains that a funeral can put on those left behind can be of real concern as no parent wants to feel like they are ‘scrimping’ on their child’s send off. It is a real yet, sad fact that no parent should have to even consider saving and planning for the funeral of their child. Yet the cost of ensuring that you have the opportunity to give your child a beautiful and deserving service is something that no financial help, for a teenager of a certain age, is available for. The charity therefore aims to provide financial aid to help provide the funeral that child deserves.

You Raise Me Up relies on the kind donations of the public to help support those that have suffered the loss of someone special. We guarantee 100% of the money we are donated goes toward helping others.
