The government is committed to supporting the armed forces community by working with a range of partners who have signed the covenant. The covenant is a national responsibility involving government, businesses, local authorities, charities and the public.
For general information related to the Covenant, including latest news, advice for the armed forces community, advice for private/commercial and public sectors, and sign-posting to useful organisations and websites, please go the Armed Forces Covenant Website.
Businesses and charitable organisations who wish to demonstrate their support for the armed forces community can sign the covenant. In doing so they make a range of written and publicised promises to set out their support.
There are several initiatives as part of the Armed Forces Covenant designed to support serving personnel and their families. There is also information about understanding your employment rights as a reservist.
Information about support services for armed forces is here.
