The Armed Forces Covenant is a major policy commitment by the UK Government towards the members of the Armed Forces Community, which includes individuals who have served or who serve in the Armed Forces and their families. With an Armed Forces Community of over 6 million – nearly 10% of the UK population – the Covenant is in place to ensure that this community is treated fairly and does not suffer a disadvantage as a result of their or their family member’s service and as such it covers a broad spectrum of policy areas and support. Special consideration is appropriate in some cases, especially for those who have given most such as the injured and the bereaved. The Armed Forces Covenant site has more information about the covenant and how it works.
