WEST LANCASHIRE ARMED FORCES COVENANT

by .

Hi

My name is Paul Hennessy and I am the Armed Forces Champion for West Lancs, one of my responsibilities is delivering the Armed Forces Covenant for West Lancashire Borough Council.

The armed forces Covenant is a promise to the nation that the armed forces community should be treated fairly and face no disadvantage when accessing public and commercial services.

The covenant was established in 2011 and since then thousands of businesses, organisations and local authorities have signed into this.

Building on this the armed forces act 2021 is now creating a legal obligation on specified bodies in all four home nations of the UK, this is known as the Armed Forces Covenant Duty.

This though is only a part of my remit. I am also trying to reach out to all veterans and members who have served in the armed forces.  You may just want to talk to like-minded people, you may have issues that were part of your service and do not know who to contact or what help you can get.  Or you may just have questions?

If so, please contact:
