Following a campaign led by The Royal British Legion, the Armed Forces Covenant was enshrined into legislation in 2011, and since then, every local authority in Great Britain has signed the Covenant.
Alongside working with national and devolved government, the RBL Campaigns, Policy and Research team engages with local government to advocate for our Armed Forces community.
RBL welcomes all representatives from every level of local government – from Town and Parish Councils to directly-elected Mayors – to join our Councillor Network. Members of the Network will receive regular communication about how local government can support our Armed Forces community, and about the wider work of RBL.
If you do not serve in local government, but would like to support our work, please join our Campaigner Community.
