Armed Forces Community Covenant is a massive step in the right direction, however in the short term it does create a few of challenges for the Heroes Welcome Community Partnership, particular in the areas of duplication and confusion.

As a result of members concerns I have met with the Covenant Delivery Team at the MOD and we have agreed to work together to ensure a joined up and unified approach regarding the use of Logos etc which is particularly important in a visual support scheme such as Heroes Welcome. There are of course many other ways that communities can give support to members of the Armed Forces and these are detailed in the Community Covenant Document and I would recommend that all Corporate members visit the MOD link available on our joining page.
