We helped thousands of little troopers in 2023!

We helped thousands of little troopers in 2023. Before we move forward into this year, we wanted to take a look back at our achievements from the last. It was a busy year with three large programmes of work, supporting children at home and school.

Louise, founder of the charity, said; “Looking back over the last year I feel incredibly proud. It is sometimes hard to truly quantify some of the support we give. One example is we do not know exactly how many children are in the schools who are using our resources. However, I measure our success by the emails and messages I receive from families. I started this charity to help my little trooper and it means so much hearing how we are helping others.”

Please take a minute to watch our video to show how we helped little troopers in 2023.
