The Armed Forces Covenant was launched by the Government in June 2011 and expresses the enduring principles that govern the relationship between the nation, the Government and the Forces community. The principle being that the Forces community should not face disadvantage because of its service.
In conjunction with the Armed Forces Covenant, community covenants were launched. These are voluntary statements of mutual support between a civilian community and its local Armed Forces community. They offer us, the Armed Forces, the chance to develop effective partnership with local authorities, the charitable and business sectors and many other groups who have the best interests of the services community heart.
We have signed Armed Forces Community Covenants with all 97 councils in our area.. Each community covenant is overseen by a partnership board and an Armed Forces representative, this ensures that the needs of the service community (including veterans) are being addressed and that the relevant services are being signposted to those in need.
Military Civilian Integration (MCI) is the term used to describe the establishing of relationships and partnership working between the Armed Forces within the region - local authorities, charities, employers, individuals and veteran’s groups. MCI aims to maximise the mutual economic and social benefit to both the Armed Forces communities (serving personnel, reservists, families and veterans) and the wider civilian community who live alongside them.
