Bereaved forces children can take part in top-secret missions at home, in the garden or in the park, thanks to a partnership between charity Scotty’s Little Soldiers and education provider Commando Joe’s.
The fun missions, which are part of Commando Joe’s online parents’ portal, are designed to help children develop key skills that will not only support positive behaviour but also help to build confidence.
Commando Joe’s delivers military-inspired programmes led by veterans and is giving a free subscription to the portal to Scotty’s members. Scotty’s Little Soldiers is a charity that supports children who have experienced the death of a parent who served in the British armed forces.
Nikki Scott, founder of Scotty’s Little Soldiers, said: “It’s amazing to be working with Commando Joe’s. Scotty’s members face a lot of challenges as a consequence of the death of their parent, so any help we can give them to build resilience and confidence is so beneficial.”
Mike Hamilton OBE, founder of Commando Joe’s, said: “We hope that our contribution helps as many young people as possible.”
