SQUAD: A new teen podcast launching 13th September 

SQUAD is an exciting new eight-episode podcast launching on 13th September specifically aimed at military teenagers. Presented by TV and radio broadcaster, Katie Thistleton (who’s creds include working on BBC Radio 1 and CBBC) and Leicester Tigers rugby star, Thom Smith - who also grew up as a service child - the professionally produced podcast is the first of its kind to give a platform to military teens to share their views on Armed Forces life. Recorded in an engaging and energetic format to appeal to teen listeners, Katie and Thom will speak to 15 military teenagers as they discuss their personal experiences of being a military child and explore some of the unique challenges that service children face including deployment and separation, schooling, moving home, having a serving parent and forming friendships.  


Little Troopers Secondary Military Wellbeing Course  

Created in collaboration with teachers, military families, educational psychologists and mindfulness experts, the six-week course template is an interactive resource that schools can use with small groups of service children to encourage them to discuss some of the more challenging aspects of military life and empower them with the tools and knowledge they need to navigate challenge and change.
