Find out more about our Armed Forces Community, our duties and support available to them at the West Yorkshire Armed Forces Covenant webinar which is being hosted by Bradford Council.
Did you know, the Armed Forces Covenant came into force in 2011 and all local authorities in England have signed pledges. The Covenant covers the whole of the Armed Forces Community which includes all those who serve or who have served in the Armed Forces
(including Reservists) and their families.
The webinar will provide an overview of the Armed Forces Covenant, what it means to local authorities, information about the service pupil premium (available to schools with service pupils) and upcoming changes to the legislation that will bring parts of
it into law. It’s your opportunity to hear from some of the services that can offer support to members of the Armed Forces Community and for you to gain an insight into life within the Military.
The event will be opened by key Military figures alongside the West Yorkshire Mayor.
Guest speakers on the day will include:
- Covenant in the Community Lead – who will be providing an overview of the Covenant legislation changes expected to be passed into law later this year
- Leeds City Region Housing Officers – providing an overview of their project and the housing support they can offer staff
- NHS Mental Health Services – describing the specialist health support available through the NHS
Date and time: Tuesday 15th June, 10-11.15am
Platform: MS Teams
Audience: All West Yorkshire Council staff (particularly those within frontline service roles), elected members
