The Armed Forces Covenant is a voluntary statement of mutual support between a civilian community and its local Armed Forces Community.
In communities across the country, Armed Forces Covenants uphold a commitment to protect and champion those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces.
In Worcestershire several organisations have signed the Armed Forces Covenant, pledging to look after the active armed forces community and ex-service people in the county.
You can learn more about Armed Forces Covenants across the country at the GOV.UK website (link opens in a new window).
The Armed Forces Covenant Partnership
The County Council has put together a partnership that overlooks the Armed Forces Covenant. This Partnership meets regularly throughout the year to share information and discuss ways in which services can be improved for our active armed forces members and Veterans across Worcestershire.
The Partnership is a cross organisation group with several charities, support workers and local government organisations sharing experiences and knowledge of armed forces related issues.
Worcestershire Partnership formally signed the Armed Forces Covenant for Worcestershire on Friday 29 June 2012.
The Armed Forces Covenant Partnership is chaired by Councillor Rob Adams.
