About the project

Little Troopers at School project objective is to educate schools, primary and secondary, about the unique needs through circumstance of military children and make available easily accessible resources to you.

Our aim is to ensure all military children get fair and consistent support within their education setting wherever that may be, for all circumstances and however many times they move schools.

Watch this short video where Louise speaks to two serving military parents about the quick and easy ways schools can support service children in education.
