Bradford District Armed Forces Covenant Partnership

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation that no one who serves or has served in the Forces, or their families, should face disadvantage when accessing services compared the rest of the population.

On 30 January 2012, the Council and partners came together to show their commitment and support to the local Armed Forces Community and signed the Community Covenant (now known as the Armed Forces Covenant). You can find further information on the Council and partners pledge on Bradford Council and partner’s Armed Forces Covenant Pledge page.

The Council and partners who signed the Community Covenant came together to form the Bradford District Armed Forces Covenant Partnership with their first meeting held on the 26 April 2012.
