Covenant Legal Duty

The Covenant Legal Duty is a legal obligation on certain public bodies (including local authorities, governing bodies of certain state schools, various NHS bodies, and other organisations) to have due regard to the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant when carrying out certain functions in healthcare, education and housing.

The MOD Covenant Team are undertaking work to assess the impact of the Armed Forces Covenant Legal Duty, which came into force in November 2022. We are therefore requesting information from bodies in scope of the Duty through the Impact of the Covenant Legal Duty Survey 2024. We would be grateful if you could take 10 minutes to complete this survey, which will be live until 15th July 2024.
