We have signed up to the Armed Forces Community Covenant.
Community Covenants are voluntary statements of mutual support between civilian and Armed Forces communities.
They are intended to complement, at a local level, the Armed Forces Covenant, which outlines the moral obligations between the Nation, the Government and the Armed Forces.
You can view a pdf of our signed covenant.
Community Covenants aim to:
- encourage local communities to support the Armed Forces community in their areas;
- nurture public understanding and awareness of the issues affecting the Armed Forces community;
- recognise and remember the sacrifices made by the Armed Forces community;
- encourage activities which help to integrate the Armed Forces community into local life; and
- encourage the Armed Forces community to help and support the wider community, whether through participation in events and joint projects, or other forms of engagement.

 It is recommended that Brigade MCIs do not notify projects of this date but instead explain to project managers that they are likely to be notified of the outcome of the Board on or around 26 Nov 15 and 10 Mar 16 – about a week after the Boards have sat. This allows time for result letters to be prepared and will help prevent an influx of enquiries both to MCIs and the Covenant Team.
The primary aim of Veterans’ NHS Wales is to improve the mental health and wellbeing of veterans with a service related mental health problem
The secondary aim is to achieve this through the development of sustainable, accessible and effective services that meet the needs of veterans with mental health and wellbeing difficulties who live in Wales.
