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, have real potential to make a difference on the ground in local communities and the results are starting to be demonstrated.
The Legion is very supportive of Community Covenants.
We would like all local authorities to sign up to the Community Covenant scheme and to implement tangible measures as part of signing. We see this scheme as an excellent opportunity to honour the Armed Forces Covenant and really bring its principles to life locally.
