Armed Forces

The council recognises the value Serving personnel; Regular and Reservists, Cadets, Volunteers, Veterans and Military Families, contribute to our organisation, community and country. We have pledged our support for the Armed Forces Community by signing the Armed Forces Covenant in November 2017 and are fully committed to ensuring that those who serve, have served and their families, are treated with fairness and respect.

On this page you will find out more about what this means to us and the support which has been put in place.
