William Fergus Martin, the founder of the charity and author of Forgiveness is Power has made it known that the demands have increased greatly since the lockdown.

He started writing about forgiveness in 2008 but his first book, Forgiveness is Power was published in 2013. He revealed that he launched the charity in 2016 because he found out that most people need materials that would aid them to work on forgiving others.
