The Legion is very supportive of Community Covenants, which were introduced as a result of campaigning by the Legion to get the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant written into law. They have the potential to make a real difference on the ground in local communities.
The Legion has more than 90 years of history campaigning for the rights of its beneficiaries. From fighting for pensions and jobs after the First World War to the Armed Forces Covenant being written into law recently, the Legion is the voice of the Armed Forces community.
Our work in Wales
With a separate legislature in Wales, it is essential for the Legion to engage with policymakers on behalf of our beneficiaries in Wales.
In particular we work to ensure the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant are maintained.
Research and policy work
The Legion's latest policy briefings, consultation responses, research projects and other publications on a wide range of subjects such as mental health, alcohol misuse, Gulf War etc, as well as links to other relevant documents and publications, are available here.
