But it’s admitted there’s “a long way to go” – as welfare groups raise a number of concerns. The annual Armed Forces Covenant Report sets out the Government’s achievements in fulfilling its duty to ensure the military community is treated fairly and without discrimination. The report acknowledged a number of key achievements made over the last 12 months, including the new ‘Strategy for our Veterans’ and the launch of the Armed Forces Flexible Working Act. Other ‘key’ achievements include:
£23 million of Service Pupil Premium payments made to support 76,000 service children in primary and secondary schools across England.
More than 3,000 businesses and organisations have signed the Armed Forces Covenant.
Plans to launch the ‘Defence Transition Policy’ – aiming to improve ‘holistic’ support to personnel and their families when leaving the Armed Forces.
