Armed Forces Community Covenant

Signing the pledge

Mayor with member of armed forces

On 8 April 2014 Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council pledged support for its local armed forces community through the signing of a covenant. Representatives of the Ministry of Defence and voluntary sectors from the civilian community of Leicestershire joined representatives from the armed forces community in Leicestershire to sign the covenant.

The covenant is a voluntary statement of mutual support, which encourages each party to bring their knowledge, experience and expertise to bear on mutually beneficial matters, in which both communities can share.

Three years later, the Borough Council has been awarded the bronze award from the Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS). The scheme comprises bronze, silver and gold awards for employers who support those who serve or have served in the armed forces and their families.

The signed pledge, the full community covenant and our bronze award certificate are available to view on our website.
