About Us and Partners
The Suffolk Armed Forces Community Covenant is one of many such pledges established across the UK over the last 5 years. These 'covenants' include local councils, statutory agencies and voluntary and charity sector organisations that effectively represent the local community.
To oversee this pledge in Suffolk the Suffolk Military Covenant Working Group (board) has been formed. This includes representation from local military units, military welfare and veteran support agencies, local charities and council officers. Representatives meet 3 times a year.
The practical actions of the covenant are coordinated and monitored by the Suffolk Military Covenant Task Force. This includes Military Liaison Officers (tasked by 7th Infantry Brigade & HQ East) and Suffolk County Council Officers. They too meet three times a year between the Working Group (board) meetings.
