Lilly-Grace talks about Lighthouse Project

We have worked with Lilly-Grace to talk about the Lighthouse Project

Lilly-Grace attends Queen Victoria School, which is a boarding school for pupils from armed forces and veteran families in Dunblane.


Forces Children Scotland has worked in partnership with Queen Victoria School to deliver the Lighthouse Project, which helps pupils to better understand and enhance mental health and wellbeing.

Having listened to pupils and staff about what support was needed, the charity secured funding from ABF: The Soldiers Charity to launch one-to-one and peer support services last year.

Lilly-Grace was part of the working group who came up with the idea to set these services up at Queen Victoria School, who has also received one-to one support through the project.

We travelled to Dunblane to talk to Lilly-Grace about the support she has received, its positive impact and why it’s so important to have support in place.

Lilly-Grace is joined by Christina, who is our Wellbeing Worker in place at Queen Victoria School to deliver Lighthouse Project services.

Forces Children Scotland has launched digital mental health and wellbeing resources from its Your Mind Matters Hub.

These resources have been co-produced with and for children and young people from armed forces and veteran families.
