Little Troopers in The Press

In the news

In print, online, on the radio, in podcast recordings and on the television, Little Troopers regularly features in the media talking about the unique experiences of military children and helping to shine a light on some of the challenges our little troopers face when growing up as a military child.

Awards for Little Troopers

Over the past seven years we have been very lucky that the work of Little Troopers and Louise Fetigan, our founder, has been recognised with various awards. These awards are so humbling and mean so much and best of all it raises awareness of Little Troopers and the challenges faced daily by the children of our British Armed Forces.
