We are very pleased to reveal that we have been accredited with the Armed Forces Covenant Bronze Award by the Ministry of Defence, showing our commitment and support to Armed Forces Personnel and their families.
The award recognises the need for employers to appreciate the unique position that veterans of our armed forces are in, particularly when it comes to finding employment and supporting their families.
The covenant outlines two key principles:
- The armed forces community should not face disadvantage compared to other citizens in the provision of public and commercial services
- Special consideration is appropriate in some cases, especially for those who have given the most such as the injured and bereaved
Through the Armed Forces Covenant, the government has increased funding for services dedicated to supporting veterans, including a number of schemes aimed at providing affordable housing and post-conflict support.
We are proud to be a part of the Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme, and even prouder to support our armed forces and the sacrifices they make to keep us safe.
