Armed Forces Covenant

 Positive Steps is proud to have signed up to The Armed Forces Covenant

The covenant is a pledge that together we acknowledge and understand that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives.

 

The covenant focuses on helping members of the armed forces community have the same access to government and commercial services and products as any other citizen.

 

This support is provided in a number of areas including:

education and family well-being
having a home

discounted services


The covenant supports serving personnel, service leavers, veterans, and their families. And is fulfilled by the different groups that have committed to making a difference.

 

These include:
