Community Engagement

The Armed Forces Covenant expresses the enduring principles that govern the relationship between the Nation, the Government and the Forces Community.  Its principle is that nobody should face disadvantage because of military service and covers housing, education, after service support for all veterans.

Community Covenants were launched alongside the Armed Forces Covenants.  These voluntary statements of mutual support between civilian and their Armed Forces community, have been signed by all of our local authorities.

Military Civilian Integration (MCI) is a working partnership between the British Army, local authorities, statutory bodies and other civil organisations in the region.  MCI aims to maximise the mutual economic and social benefit to both the Armed Forces community (serving, reserve, families and veterans) and our civilian community.

Our long term aim is to ensure the Armed Forces community in Yorkshire and the North East, particularly those in and around our two Garrison areas, improve their quality of life which only benefits the civilian community.

The Covenant sets out the relationship between the Nation, the State and the Armed Forces. It recognises that the whole nation has a moral obligation to members of the Armed Forces and their families.

UK Veterans is a website designed to provide a one stop shop to all government agencies.

The MCI Team aims to act as a link between the locally focused elements of the Brigade and civilian organisations throughout the region.

The key objectives are:

  • Identify and manage the impact of changes to the size, nature and geographical location of Armed Forces communities.
  • Provide partner organisations with a clear understanding of the specific needs of the Armed Forces communities in their area in order to factor these needs into long-term planning, and to enable the appropriate provision of local authority services.
  • Establish a programme of work that delivers mutual benefit and promotes economic and social integration between the Armed Forces communities and the wider civilian community.
  • Provide a focal point for Community Engagement activity in the Brigade area.
