Lincolnshire Armed Forces Covenant

Working to support Armed Forces Communities in Lincolnshire

What is the Lincolnshire Armed Forces Covenant?

The Armed Forces Covenant is a voluntary statement of mutual support between a civilian community and its local Armed Forces community. The Covenant outlines the moral obligations between the nation, the Government and the Armed Forces at a local level.

What will the Covenant do?

A wide range of organisations work in partnership to meet the aims of the Covenant by discussing and developing projects to ensure successful delivery of the Lincolnshire Armed Forces Covenant Measures and Action Plan.

The aims of the Covenant in Lincolnshire are to:

  • Encourage local communities to support the Armed Forces Community in their areas;
  • Nurture public understanding and awareness amongst the public of issues affecting the Armed Forces Community;
  • Recognise and remember the sacrifices faced by the Armed Forces Community;
  • Encourage activities which help to integrate the Armed Forces Community into local life;
  • Encourage the Armed Forces Community to help and support the wider community, whether through participation in events and joint projects, or other forms of engagement
