Lancaster and District Chamber Of Commerce are proud to announce that they have signed the Armed Forces Pledge Covenant.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation, ensuring that those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces, and their families, are treated fairly. The Covenant is a national responsibility and the Government is committed to delivering the best possible outcomes for the Armed Forces community by working with a range of delivery partners including businesses, local authorities, charities and the public.

Businesses and local authorities who wish to support the Armed Forces community can sign the Covenant, and publicly declare their commitments.

The Armed Forces Covenant represents a promise by the nation that those who serve or have served, and their families, are treated fairly. All 407 local authorities in mainland Great Britain and 4 Northern Ireland councils have pledged to uphold the Armed Forces Covenant. To date over 1,500 organisations have signed the covenant, including businesses and charities.
