Another Worcestershire business has pledged their support to the Armed Forces Covenant.

Stepway chose to officially sign the Armed Forces Covenant Pledge at a Veteran Community Day they hosted in Worcester last Friday (13 March)

Their pledge was counter-signed by an officer from the 11 Signal & West Midlands Brigade.

The event itself took place in the Pod space at the Crowngate Shopping Centre.

Councillor Lucy Hodgson, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Communities, said:
It’s wonderful for Stepway to have officially signed the Armed Forces Covenant Partnership. Today’s Veteran Community Day proved to be a fantastic way to raise awareness of the services and charities in the community that are dedicated to support Worcestershire’s veterans. These events are one way of ensuring that our ex-servicemen and women to receive any tailored support they need.”

Several local businesses, organisations and military charities hosted stalls at the event including Job Centre Plus, FUSION and the Citizen Bureau.

The Worcestershire Adult Learning Team, Worcestershire Libraries and the Armed Forces Covenant Officer are also among those who attended the event, which promoted the support that is available to the county’s veterans.
