An annual survey of bereaved British Forces families supported by children’s military charity Scotty’s Little Soldiers, found that a staggering 87% of them felt disconnected from the military community following the death of a loved one who was serving.
Following the alarming findings of the survey, Scotty’s Little Soldiers started a campaign with the aim of reconnecting families with the Armed Forces community. The #Reconnect campaign was launched with a heart-warming and candid video of the charity founder Nikki Scott’s daughter, Brooke (age 10), asking her father’s Troop Sergeant, Paul Howard, questions about her late father, Corporal Lee Scott who was killed in Afghanistan in 2009 when Brooke was just 7 months old. The emotional meeting meant a huge amount to both Brooke and Paul and shows the importance of reconnecting bereaved families with the military community.
Nikki founded Scotty’s Little Soldiers in 2010 to support children across the UK who have lost a parent who served in the British Armed Forces. The charity was set up in memory of Nikki’s husband and father of her two children, Lee.
