Armed Forces Community Covenant

Local authorities and the armed forces community are encouraged to work together to establish a community covenant in their area in order to:

  • encourage local communities to support the armed forces community in their areas and to nurture public understanding and awareness among the public of issues affecting the armed forces community
  • recognise and remember the sacrifices faced by the armed forces community
  • encourage activities which help to integrate the armed forces community into local life
  • encourage the armed forces community to help and support the wider community, whether through participation in events and joint projects, or other forms of engagement

The Bristol initiative reflects the government’s Armed Forces Covenant and government policy to improve the support available for the Armed Forces community.
