The armed forces community faces a number of challenges brought about by service life, such as:

  • finding school places for their children as families frequently move around the country or overseas
  • finding meaningful employment for partners/spouses
  • getting fair access to competitive mortgage rates

The Armed Forces Covenant looks to change that by providing an extensive network of support across the country, including asking companies and local authorities to pledge their commitment to improve support for personnel.

So far, 394 companies have signed the corporate part of the Armed Forces Covenant and the latest annual report shows that:

  • every local authority in Great Britain has signed a Community Covenant
  • the Forces Help To Buy Scheme was launched on 1 April 2014 and has allocated £34 million to help 3,500 service families get on or stay on the property ladder
  • the MOD established a £40 million fund for projects specialising in accommodation for veterans
