The Sheffield Community Covenant

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Sheffield City Council signed its Community Covenant in November 2011 to complement the National Armed Forces Covenant as a statement of mutual support between the civilian and the local armed forces community.

This Covenant includes a commitment to recognise the contribution made by the armed services and the sacrifices made by members of the armed forces community. It calls for a sharing of knowledge, experience and expertise when providing help and advice to members of the armed forces community, including integration from service life into civilian life.

Councillor Clive Skelton has been appointed as Armed Forces Champion for the city, and keeps in contact with the armed forces community, including veterans groups. On Armed Forces Day a stall in the town centre encouraged Sheffield’s citizens to sign up and show their support.

In practical terms the Council has reviewed its policies to see how it can assist members of the armed forces on discharge by, for example, giving them priority for housing. A number of companies have signed up as partners and provide opportunities for work experience. Others offer discounts to current and former service personnel. Recently Sheffield International Venues agreed to provide service personnel with a card giving them free access to a number of sporting venues.

Meg said:

“I am proud of the work that the Council is doing to support current and former service personnel. The implementation of the covenant demonstrates both practical and moral support for those who are serving or who have served their country. I was pleased to visit the stall with Councillor Clive Skelton who himself served in the forces.”
