E-learning for Local Authorities


Module 1

Service personnel and their families face often unique challenges. The Forces in Mind Trust and three councils, Coventry, Solihull, and Warwickshire Armed Forces Covenant partnership, have created an e-learning package and a toolkit to help Armed Forces Champions and frontline staff that are new to the Covenant and to raise awareness of the Covenant within civilian and military organisations.

E-learning package

The materials are available for free for any agency or organisation. It is aimed at front-line staff who engage with families on a regular basis. The training provides an overview of the unique challenges of Service life and how staff can help support the Armed Forces Community.

Forces in Mind toolkit

The Forces in Mind trust is a charitable organisation that aims to enable ex-service personnel and their families to lead successful civilian lives. The Trust frequently commissions research and had produced a report on effective delivery of the covenant within communities. The report is available on
The Forces in Mind trust website.

The report includes a toolkit for councils to help implement the Covenant which is based on a review of successful councils and how they help deliver the Covenant in their area. The toolkit begins on page 42 of the report.
