"I am honoured to act as Armed Forces Champion, on behalf of Hull City Council. Our local authority is committed to the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant. We value our Armed Forces Community, and recognise the commitment and sacrifices made by our Armed Forces"

Councillor Alan Gardiner - Armed Forces Champion

The Armed Forces Covenant

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the Nation that those who serve in the Armed Forces, whether regular or Reserve, those who have served in the past, and their families, should face no disadvantage compared to other citizens in the provision of public and commercial services.

The Armed Forces Covenant relies on the people, communities, and businesses to actively support it in order to make a difference.

Armed Forces and Veterans' Charter

The City of Kingston upon Hull Armed Forces and Veterans' Charter

Servicemen and women leaving the armed forces often need advice on issues including health, education, housing, training and jobs. We also understand that their families and carers may need support.

Our Armed Forces and Veterans’ Charter encourages public bodies and partner organisations to support in-service and ex-service personnel from the military and the Merchant Navy, their families, veterans and carers.

Access to social and rented housing, retraining for employment, and support groups for servicemen and women suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder are just a few of the issues specific to veterans which the Charter addresses through better joined-up working between agencies.

The Charter is available to download here (Opens in a new window)
