Support for Military Families
Evolution Forces Forces Families are very proud to partner with the following carefully selected organisations that share the same values and background as ourselves and offer invaluable services to the military community.
Little Troopers is a registered charity supporting all children with parent(s) serving in the regular or reserve British Army, Royal Navy or Royal Air Force, it is the first tri-service children’s charity specifically supporting the unique daily challenges faced by military children.
British Armed Forces families can be repeatedly and sometimes concurrently separated due to many reasons, it may be operations, exercises, courses or other service commitments, families may choose to live married unaccompanied or children may be in boarding school. Whatever the reasons, Little Troopers ensures no matter where they are based families have tools and resources they can self-sufficiently reach via our website to remain connected and bonded through separation, be it one month or 10 months they are apart.
Little Troopers provides fundamental resources to ease and aid forced separation periods between serving personnel and child; Separation Packs which include chuff charts, world map, stickers, postcard pack and more, Send a Hug kits and a whole host of downloadable activities from the website www.littletroopers.net
Parents can use the parents section which has lots of advice and also printable certificates to give to children who have been brave through a separation period, and not forgetting our Birthday Scheme; sign up your Little Troopers to receive a personalised card and badge on their birthday.
Little Troopers Treasures is also an initiative from the charity providing various tools to families to stay connected even though separated by miles.
Little Troopers also runs various events across the year for military families meaning that regardless of service, rank, living location all belong within the community. Summer Adventure Camp and Snowdon Challenge are just a couple of the annual events that take place, children benefit from being with others in a similar situation and parents find they reconnect with their Little Troopers.
