Key agenda items for discussion and decisions on 19 September. 

Armed Forces Covenant 

A new Armed Forces Covenant has been prepared setting out the Council’s pledges supporting our Armed Forces Community.   

The pledges have been created from focus groups involving members of the Armed Forces Community including veterans, their families and dependents. The Council has also appointed an Armed Forces Champion, Cllr Leanne MacIntyre, who has overseen the development of the pledges.  

The proposed Armed Forces Covenant supports the Council’s key priorities in the areas of Health and Wellbeing, including taking a positive approach to supporting those who are most vulnerable.

If the Executive approve the pledges an event will be organised with members of our Armed Forces Community to sign the Covenant.
