Armed Forces Covenant

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

The HAC has signed the Armed Forces Covenant as a way of declaring the extensive support it already provides to the Armed Forces, which includes:

  • offering all employees with Reservist obligations 15 days paid leave per year to meet that obligation
  • offering a discount on room hire of 50% for military organisations
  • engaging the Career Transition Partnership and Recruit for Spouses when seeking to employ new staff

The support listed is in addition to the extensive financial and material support provided by the HAC to the Reserves through the Regiment, Army and Police cadets as well as our ceremonial sub-units in the City.
