Armed Forces Covenant 

Armed Forces Covenant logo - Silver Award 2020We support members of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families, remembering the sacrifices they have made. We signed the Cumbrian Armed Forces Community Covenant in 2013. We held a Covenant signing event in March 2022 to encourage partners and organisations in Carlisle to sign the Covenant. We also reaffirmed our commitment by re-signing the Covenant at this event.

The Covenant means that the Council and its partners, offer recognition, consideration, and support to the Armed Forces community. We address issues such as housing, health care, welfare, employment and help in the community. Councillor Elizabeth Mallinson is our Armed Forces Champion and leads this work.

We achieved the Silver Award from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) in 2020. This award recognises our commitment and support for defence personnel.
