Forces Children Scotland

Charity registered in Scotland SC010952

Forces Children Scotland directly/indirectly supports over 12,500 children & young people from armed forces and veteran families across Scotland.

We co-produce projects and services directly with children and young people which help to better understand and overcome unique challenges faced when it comes to mental health and wellbeing, education and learning, important transitions, and much more. We co-produce campaigns that amplify lived experience to help civilian audiences, like teachers and decision-makers, to better understand the lives they lead and to adopt a children’s rights approach to meet their unique support needs. We bring children and young people together to deliver life-changing experiences to develop new skills, build confidence and forge new friendships through a sense of belonging, shared experience, and collective purpose. We provide financial support when it matters most to armed forces and veteran families facing financial crisis as well as to young carers and students.
