Greater Manchester Armed Forces Covenant Website and E-learning

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation ensuring that those who serve or who have served, and their families, are treated fairly.

The Covenant recognises the sacrifices they make on behalf of the country. It is not designed to give the armed forces, veterans and their families preferential treatment compared with other people, but it should ensure that they are not placed at a disadvantage as a result of their service.

In December 2014, the Greater Manchester Combined Authority became the first combined authority to sign the Covenant  and have since established an Armed Forces Hub to co-ordinate a strategic response to the opportunities and challenges that face the Armed Forces community.

The Hub is co-ordinating activity around work and skills; age-friendly places; healthy ageing; housing, planning and transport; culture and learning; and communications. It has already delivered e-learning for all those who are seeking to develop their knowledge of the needs of the Armed Forces community.
