"Scotty's were able to support children through the additional pressures of lockdown when their regular and reassuring routines had disappeared."
VIVID ‘We’re All Together’ Fund
Leading housing association VIVID has partnered with HIWCF to allocate £125,000 through the ‘We’re All Together’ Emergency Fund helping communities affected by Covid-19.
Scotty’s Little Soldiers received a grant thanks to funding provided by VIVID Homes to support 26 bereaved British Forces children in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
Scotty’s helps children to build their self-confidence, make new friends and has been offering advice on surviving lockdown by providing a programme of exciting and fun online events such as quizzes, music and singing for those whose lives have already been turned upside down by parental loss.
“We’re delighted to have worked with HIWCF to award funding to so many groups in our communities, who have provided support and been a much-needed lifeline to so many during this difficult time. It’s made us realise we can do even more to help make a difference which we’re gearing up to start in the new year.” Jonathan Cowie, Chief Operating Officer, VIVID
