What is the Armed Forces Covenant?
The Armed Forces Covenant is the nation’s commitment to you to those who proudly protect our nation, and do so with honour, courage and commitment.
It is a pledge that together we acknowledge and understand that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives.
Who is involved?
The covenant supports serving personnel, service leavers, veterans, and their families. And is fulfilled by the different groups that have committed to making a difference.
- Central government, overseen by the Ministerial Covenant and Veterans Board
- Single services (Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force)
- Businesses of all sizes
- Local government
- Cadet forces and their adult volunteers
