Armed Force Covenant
Businesses, charitable, and public sector organisations of all sizes who wish to support the armed forces community can sign the covenant. You make your own promises on how you will demonstrate your support.
The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) encourages employers to support defence and inspire others to do the same. The scheme encompasses bronze, silver and gold awards for employer organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to defence and the armed forces community, and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant.
The ERS is designed primarily to recognise private sector support although public sector organisations such as the emergency services, local authorities, NHS trusts and executive agencies are also eligible to be recognised.
The Armed Forces Covenant represents a promise by the nation that those who serve or have served, and their families, are treated fairly.
The Armed Forces Covenant can be signed by:
· Businesses of all sizes
· Charitable organisations
· Local authorities
· Public sector organisations
Single services: Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force (RAF)
