Armed Forces Covenant
The Armed Forces Covenant is about fair treatment. For most of the Armed Forces community, the Covenant is about removing disadvantage; so that they get the same access to services as the civilian community. The Armed Forces Covenant sets out the relationship between the nation, the government and the Armed Forces. It recognises that the whole nation has a moral obligation to members of the Armed Forces and their families, and it establishes how they should expect to be treated.
Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council, along with other Local Authorities across Coventry, Warwickshire and Solihull pledged it’s commitment to the Armed Forces community via the Coventry, Warwickshire and Solihull Armed Forces Community Covenant in 2012.
The Covenant’s two principles are that:
- the Armed Forces community should not face disadvantage compared to other citizens in the provision of public and commercial services in the area where they live;
- special consideration is appropriate in some cases, especially for those who have given most such as the injured and the bereaved
