Scotty’s Little Soldiers, a charity for bereaved British Forces’ children, has launched a new social media campaign #FindOurHeroesChildren.
The campaign is designed to trace those who have lost a parent serving in the British Army, Royal Air Force or Royal Navy, and may need their support.
Scotty’s currently provides support for over 220 children; however, it “estimates there could be five times that number which it is currently unable to help”.
The charity is asking the Great British public to get involved in the campaign by following their social media accounts and sharing the #FindOurHeroesChildren hashtag.
Founder Nikki Scott said: “Scotty’s relies on word of mouth and social media to reach out and find the children and their families who are not yet receiving our support.
“This is why we have launched a national campaign and we need the public’s help to find our heroes’ children and let them know all the great activities and opportunities that exist for them.”
