learn more about what we do

Scotty’s Little Soldiers is a charity dedicated to supporting children & young people who have lost a parent whilst serving 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.

Support offered to the children includes fun activities such as holiday breaks and group events, personal development assistance through educational grants and access to professional bereavement counselling

Our mission is to #HelpTheirChildrenSmile.


Scotty’s Little Soldiers aims to provide relief from the effects of bereavement to young people suffering the loss of a parent serving with the British Armed Forces.


Shaving your head, running, cake sales, skydives, mud runs and much much more.
