Armed Forces Covenant

Armed Forces Covenant Logo

Ashford Borough Council has pledged to work with the Armed Forces to help and support regular and reservist servicemen and women, veterans and service families. Our Armed Forces Covenant exists to encourage support for the Armed Forces Community in Ashford and to recognise and remember the sacrifices made by members of the Armed Forces Community.

Key Principles of the Covenant

No member of the Armed Forces Community should face disadvantage compared to other citizens when accessing local services.

Special consideration is appropriate in some cases for those who have given the most, such as the injured and bereaved.

We welcome applications from the Armed Forces Community.
