Armed Forces - Covenant

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation that those who serve or have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly.

The government is committed to supporting the armed forces community by working with a range of partners who have signed the covenant. The covenant is a national responsibility involving government, businesses, local authorities, charities and the public.

The Armed Forces Covenant provides you, as serving personnel, and your family with practical support and advice to help you.

Some policies will apply to you and others will not.
