St Helens Armed Forces Covenant

St.Helens Council are proud to honour our local Armed Forces community through public events such as the Annual Armed Forces Day and the Service of Remembrance. We signed the Armed Forces Covenant in 2012 and work closely with our local regiments, Armed Forces charities, and health, housing, education and employment partners to ensure the Armed Forces community receive the support and recognition they are entitled to.

This page has details of that support; the Related Pages tab (below) takes you to other information, including local Armed Forces Community News and details of how to access the Covenant Fund, which supports local Armed Forces-related projects, and our most recent annual St.Helens Armed Forces Covenant Report 2017-18.

If you or a member of your family serve in the British Armed Forces, or are an Armed Forces Service Leaver, Reservist, Veteran, Widow or Widower, the following PDF leaflet holds a summary of the support available in St.Helens: Information Leaflet for St.Helens Armed Forces Community and Armed Forces Families resettling in St Helens.
