Armed Forces Covenant Duty toolkit – launched!

March 7, 2023

We’re very pleased to announce the launch of the Armed Forces Covenant Duty toolkit.

The toolkit contains a range of resources that provide information about the legal Duty aspect of the Armed Forces Covenant, including:

  • links to reference documents such as the Statutory Guidance
  • access to quick guides that explain the Duty more briefly
  • links to relevant YouTube videos
  • training resources that can be used to inform yourself or to engage with your wider networks


We will be adding to this toolkit in the coming weeks as additional resources come on stream. Please contact us if there’s anything else you would like us to include in the toolkit.

Vice Admiral Philip Hally, Chief of Defence People, said:

The Armed Forces Covenant Duty launched in November 2022 and is a key milestone in the evolution of the Armed Forces Covenant. It places a legal obligation on Local Authorities, NHS Trusts and other local bodies across the UK responsible for delivering services in healthcare, housing and education, to ensure they pay due regard to the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant.

The new Duty Toolkit is a fantastic one-stop-shop with lots of useful resources to help aid local service providers deliver and implement the Duty in practice. It’s the next important step in increasing awareness of the Covenant at a local level, something which will ultimately improve the lives of everyone in our Armed Forces community.
