Decision Maker: Community Safety Committee
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Members were informed that the Military Covenant, or Armed Forces Covenant, was a term introduced in 2000 to refer to the mutual obligations between the nation and its Armed Forces. It was an informal understanding, rather than a legally enforceable deal, but was nevertheless treated with great seriousness within the services. Organisations which signed up to the Covenant pledge acknowledged and understood that those who served or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives.
RESOLVED that the Armed Forces Community Covenant Action Plan 2018/20 be approved.
