Bolton Arena – Sign Armed Forces Covenant

USN Bolton Arena have joined 3,000 other organisations, including businesses and charities by signing the Armed Forces Covenant.

What is the Armed Forces Covenant?

To those who proudly protect our nation, who do so with honour, courage, and commitment, the Armed Forces Covenant is the nation’s commitment to you.

It is a pledge that together we acknowledge and understand that those who serve 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.

The Covenant is not simply a package of benefits: rather, it is the government’s aspiration of the Armed Forces Community. Its key principles are that they should face no disadvantage compared to other citizens in the provision of public and commercial services; and that special consideration is appropriate in some cases, especially for those who have given the most such as the injured and the bereaved.

The Covenant belongs to the whole Nation, and it is not just for the government to deliver. Local authorities, local communities, public services, businesses, charities, individuals and the Armed Forces themselves have a role to play.

We are delighted as an organisation to have signed the Covenant and look forward to a productive and fulfilling partnership with the Armed Forces.

For more information on the Armed Forces Covenant, head over to https://www.armedforcescovenant.gov.uk/
