Your ongoing support to the Armed Forces community is commendable and I hope our combined  efforts inspire more businesses to sign the Armed Forces Covenant.

ABOUT THE ARMED FORCES COVENANT

The Armed Forces Covenant recognises that government and the nation have an obligation to treat the armed forces community fairly. It is supported by the government, local communities and businesses to encourage support for the armed forces community and promote public understanding and awareness. The covenant is a public pledge from organisations that wish to demonstrate their support for the armed forces community, based upon two main principles:

  • no member of the armed forces community should face a disadvantage in the provision of public and commercial services compared to any other citizen.

  • in some circumstances, special treatment may be appropriate, especially for the injured or bereaved.
