What is the Armed Forces Covenant?
The Armed Forces Covenant was launched by the Prime Minister to encourage businesses and charities to do more to show their support for Armed Forces personnel.
It is a voluntary pledge of support for the armed forces community and includes two key principles – that no member of the armed forces community should face a disadvantage in the provision of public and commercial services compared to any other citizen, and that in some circumstances special treatment may be appropriate, especially for the injured or bereaved.
