Regulars and Reserves

This section provides serving personnel with information about how the Covenant can help by removing disadvantages arising from Service life, or offering special provision if appropriate.

If you are a Reserve, the Covenant is here to support you in your role, helping you to balance your civilian work with being part of the Armed Forces. Your employer can support you in maintaining this balance by signing the Covenant. They can pledge specific measures to make it easier for you to meet your Reserve service commitments, such as offering extra paid leave to attend annual training or career courses.

Some policies will apply to you and others will not. This section will direct you to the right place on GOV.UK and other trusted resources so that you can see what is available.
