Hi, my name is Nikki and I am the founder of Scotty’s Little Soldiers. My husband CPL Lee Scott was killed in Afghanistan in 2009 and as I witnessed the effects Lee's death had on our two young children, I realised pretty quickly that there was very little support in place for bereaved British forces children and young people. I wanted this to change. I wanted to make sure they had access to the very best support so Scotty’s Little Soldiers was born.
The Springboard programme has been designed to support bereaved forces young adults between 18-25 years of age. The programme will provide you with the life skills to move forward, career opportunities, access to a range of grants, and a chance to mentor the younger bereaved Scotty Members.
We recognise that turning 18 is a huge milestone in a young person’s life. You may have finished your education journey and might be looking to start work. You might be starting further education, training or looking to start a family of your own. What ever it is, Scotty’s wants to be there to support you in this next chapter.
If you are aged between 18 and 25 years and have experienced the death of a parent who has served in the British Armed Forces, please complete the form below.
