    What is the Armed Forces Covenant?


    The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation to those who serve or who have served, and their families, which says we will do all we can to ensure they are treated fairly and not disadvantaged in their day-to-day lives.

    The Armed Forces Covenant relies on the people, communities, and businesses of the UK to actively support it in order to make a difference. The government is committed to supporting the Armed Forces community by working with a range of partners who have signed the Armed Forces Covenant.

    The Covenant brings together the government, businesses, local authorities, charities and the public in order to support those who serve.


      The JSS Armed Forces Liaison Group is a team dedicated to supporting the company’s commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant. It is composed of several individuals with military backgrounds, including an Armed Forces Champion, a Covenant Project Manager, and Veteran Support members. The group’s role is to help facilitate JSS’s support for the Armed Forces community by implementing policies and practices that recognize and accommodate the needs of veterans, reservists, and cadet adult volunteer instructors. The group also provides guidance to the company’s management and employees on how to engage and work effectively with the Armed Forces community.
