Armed Forces Covenant

Proudly supporting those who serve

What is the Covenant

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation ensuring that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly.

The City of Wolverhampton Council has received the highest level of recognition for our commitment to supporting the Armed Forces Community, the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Gold Award. We encourage all organisations in the city, including businesses, to support the armed forces community by signing the Armed Forces Covenant. For further details on how to do this please view Defence Employer Recognition Scheme.
