The Armed Forces Covenant represents a promise by the nation that those who serve or have served, and their families, are treated fairly.
In 2012 Hartlepool Borough Council signed the Armed Forces Community Covenant and we are encouraging other local organisations and businesses to do the same.
The Armed Forces Covenant can be signed by:
- Businesses of all sizes
- Charitable organisations
- Local authorities
- Public sector organisations
- Single services: Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force (RAF)
The Covenant is a promise by the nation ensuring those who serve or who have served in the armed forced, and their families, are treated fairly.
Any business or charitable organisation wishing to demonstrate their support for the Armed Forces community can sign the Covenant. Nationally, more than 800 businesses and charities have done so.
In signing, a range of written and publicised promises are made to support members of the Armed Forces community who work in their business or access their products and services.
If you are interested in becoming involved, more information on how to sign the Covenant and the benefits of both supporting and employing individuals from the Armed Forces community are available here.
