Round Table sign the Armed Forces Covenant
The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation to those who serve or who have served, and their families, which says we will do all we can to ensure they are treated fairly and not be disadvantaged in their day-to- day lives. The Covenant brings together the government, businesses, local authorities, charities and the public in order to support those who serve, through services, policy and projects.
Earlier this year the Board and Council of Round Table agreed that the National Association would become a signatory to the Armed Forces Covenant. On the 16th November President of Round Table, Mark House, signed the Armed Forces Covenant to cement a future of supporting Service personnel.
Businesses and charitable organisations who wish to demonstrate their support for the Armed Forces community can sign the Covenant. Organisations can make a range of written and publicised promises to set out their support to members of the Armed Forces community who work in their business or access their products and services. As part of our commitment to maintain our support to the Covenant, serving or former Armed Forces personnel can join Round Table and receive six months free membership! Ex-Service men just like Craig;
“Civvis don’t live life like Service men do; you miss that banter and nights out… Round Table manages to fill that hole and you always get that feeling of being part of something again. My experience of being a member of Round Table has been brilliant; you can meet like-minded men who do a lot for the local community as well as having a great social life as well.”
