‘Lest we forget': councils supporting the armed forces community

published by LGA

11 November 2014

All councils in England have now committed to signing their local Armed Forces Community Covenant and to actively helping the serving and ex-serving forces personnel and families in their areas.

This fantastic achievement means that councils up and down the country are helping the serving and ex-servicing forces personnel and their families living in their areas access information on issues like housing and employment, or advice on securing places at local schools for their families. Many areas are going further than this, and are developing creative and innovative ways of enabling serving and ex-serving personnel and their families to access leisure facilities, access services to support wellbeing and mental health and are actively supporting local groups run by and for ex-serving personnel that provide peer support, networking opportunities and reduce social isolation.
