What can they do for you?

When a parent dies, the impact on their child is significant. When that parent served in the Armed Forces, the impact is even greater, with children often feeling they’ve lost their connection to the military community. Scotty’s Little Soldiers prevents that. Together, they can ensure the very best bereavement support remains available.

Scotty’s Little Soldiers is a charity dedicated to supporting bereaved military children and young people.

Inspired by the experience of Army widow Nikki Scott, the charity honours husband Corporal Lee Scott’s memory – both as a loyal soldier and a loving father – and provides a practical yet personal way for the public at large to show their appreciation for those brave individuals who make the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country.

How do they do it?

Scotty’s, aim to provide relief from the effects of grief for bereaved military children and young people who have experienced the death of a parent who served in the British Forces.

The charity provides its beneficiaries with support and guidance throughout their childhood and offers a respite, however brief, from the daily ups and downs of coping with the loss of a parent.

Assistance is available to families from the British Army, Royal Navy or RAF and includes both Regular and Reserve forces. You can view the membership criteria here.

What benefits could you experience?

Scotty’s can support any child of a deceased parent who was serving in the Armed Forces, including any unborn children at the time of death.
