For over 200 years RCET: Scotland’s Armed Forces Children’s Charity has put the wellbeing and education of Armed Forces children and young people at the heart of everything we do. Today we
provide life-changing support to thousands of children and young people across Scotland enabling them to reach their full potential.

Through our Youth Participation Programme we seek to put the voices and experiences of Armed Forces young people at the heart of everything that we do. We work with young people to empower them to
share their experiences, listening to them and giving them opportunities to share their views with decision-makers across Scotland.

Pledge:

  • Continue with our children’s rights approach committing ourselves to listening to, and supporting Armed Forces children and young people to share their experiences with relevant decision-makers across Scotland
  • Work with partners to ensure as many Armed Forces children and young people from as diverse backgrounds and experiences as possible are empowered to share their experiences.
  • Work with our local, and national Youth Participation groups to make progress on making positive change in, and for their communities of place and identity.
