Scotland’s Armed Forces Children’s Charity

Young people from serving, reservist and veteran families have less than a week to submit an application join Forces Children Scotland and Effervescent to co-develop a ground-breaking digital campaign, titled Listen Up!, to help civilian audiences better understand what it’s like to be a forces child today.

Young people, aged between 13-19 years old, from Army, Navy and Royal Air Force families have until Monday 23 May to apply to join a campaign working group to take the creative process forward this summer.

The working group will come together for a week-long immersive creative residential in Edinburgh which will explore and amplify their lived experience louder than ever before to civilian peers as well as teachers and those making important decisions about their future.

Information for young people, parents, carers and professionals, as well as the project’s online application form is available via a campaign landing page hosted on Effervescent’s website.

Forces Children Scotland’s Listen Up! Project is funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and ABF: The Soldiers Charity.
