Month of the Military Child 2024 Celebration Pack Available Now

Month of the Military Child is about recognising, understanding, and celebrating the unique lived experiences of children from military families.

We have co-produced a Celebration Pack with children and young people from armed forces communities for Month of the Military Child.

It’s for anyone who wants to enhance understanding, raise awareness, and celebrate unique experiences of children from military families.

From educators, professionals, and policymakers to wider communities across Scotland, here’s your chance to get involved!

Host a session with children and young people.

Our celebration pack has lots of activities, resources, and discussion topics to help children and young people better understand the lived experiences of military children.

It will be useful for teachers in schools, lecturers in colleges, or youth workers helping young people understand the wonderfully different communities we have in Scotland.

You may work with children and young people from military families and want to help their classmates better understand the lives they lead.

 

Bring work colleagues together for a discussion.

We warmly encourage lots of different organisations across all sectors to learn more about what it’s like to be a military child today.

It will prove very useful for organisations that have military and veteran network groups or policymakers and their teams to enhance empathy and understanding.

You might have a business that’s close to a military base too, or know a colleague with a family member who is serving or has served in the British Armed Forces.

Do you know budding young artists from armed forces communities?

We’re running a national competition for children and young people from armed forces communities to design a mascot for Forces Children Scotland.

We’re asking them to consider the following – If you had to create something to help your friends understand your identity as a forces child, what would it look like?

The competition runs throughout the Month of the Military Child. The closing date for competition entries is 5pm on 29 April 2024.
