Sign a Corporate Covenant

A Corporate Covenant is a written and publicised voluntary pledge from businesses and charitable organisations who wish to demonstrate their concrete support for the Armed Forces community.

The Corporate Covenant sits alongside and complements the Community Covenant which the council and local partners have signed.

All Corporate Covenant include a core statement of commitments that those adopting the scheme sign up to. This covers the two principles of the Armed Forces Covenant:

  • That no member of the Armed Forces community should face disadvantage in the provision of public or commercial services compared to any other citizen;
  • In some circumstances special treatment may be appropriate, especially for the injured or bereaved.

Organisations who wish to sign a Corporate Covenant can tailor the pledge to offer support in the way most appropriate to them.
