Covenant for Local Authorities
For Local Authorities, the Armed Forces Covenant is a promise of mutual support between a civilian community and its local Armed Forces community.
As a Local Authority who’s signed the Covenant, you promise to encourage local communities in supporting the armed forces community in your area, promote understanding and awareness among the public of issues affecting the armed forces community and make exceptions for Armed Forces families that have been moved to your area.
To support the Armed Forces community under the Armed Forces Covenant means to encourage activities that help to integrate the Armed Forces community into local life, and support families in accessing Local Authority services.
