Why Get Involved?

Scotty’s Little Soldiers is a charity dedicated to supporting children and young people who have experienced the death of a parent, who served in the British Armed Forces.

Inspired by the experience of Army widow Nikki Scott following the death of her husband Cpl Lee Scott in Afghanistan in 2009, the charity is currently providing assistance to hundreds of bereaved Forces children around the UK.

At Scotty’s we provide help and support to bereaved military children and young people aged 0-25, through our four Family Programmes; Smiles, Support, Strides and Springboard. You can find out more on our programmes by heading over to our website.
