MKC Heroes is a national support group for military children which uses a network of after-school clubs to bring together youngsters aged between three and 18.

Members are ambassadors for Service families across the UK and are there for each other, especially in times of need.

One youngster said: “It is a safe place to talk because you know your friends will understand how you feel because they feel the same. We can speak openly about our issues and challenge our schools to respond through the group, rather than having to single ourselves out.

“Our motto ‘Together as One’ was devised around this theme. The key words we use are: strength, hope, trust, care and support.”
