MCL commit to honour the Armed Forces Covenant and support the Armed Forces Community
25 Mar 2014
MCL actively employs Military veterans both Soldiers and Officers as well as Serving Soldiers spouses. We are a major sponsor for the British Forces Foundation Charity and we regularly donate and raise money to the many Armed Forces charities.
MCL is a keen supporter of the Covenant and to this effect we are proud to show our commitment by formally signing up to support.
The armed forces covenant sets out the relationship between the nation, the government and the armed forces. It recognises that the whole nation has a moral obligation to members of the armed forces and their families, and it establishes how they should expect to be treated.
The covenant’s 2 principles are that:
- the armed forces community should not face disadvantage compared to other citizens in the provision of public and commercial services
- special consideration is appropriate in some cases, especially for those who have given most such as the injured and the bereaved
