Armed forces covenant annual report 2012

This publication was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

Sets out major achievements of the armed forces covenant and highlights remaining challenges and new commitments.


This first annual report is the beginning of a process to identify issues and make sure they are addressed. The report highlights progress across all 15 themes of the armed forces covenant and identifies work still to be done.

The report covers the following groups:

  • serving personnel
  • reservists
  • the wounded, injured and sick
  • families
  • the bereaved
  • service leavers
  • veterans

It sets out a number of important achievements and also highlights remaining challenges and makes a series of new commitments. There is also a Welsh translation of the report.

Three leaflets, explaining what the covenant means for serving personnel, veterans and service families can now be found here.
