Providing Homes for British Military Veterans, NHS and Emergency Service Personnel
The Armed Forces Covenant
The first duty of Government is the defence of the realm. Our Armed Forces fulfil that responsibility on behalf of Government, sacrificing some civilian freedoms, facing danger and, sometimes, suffering serious injury or death as a result of their duty. Families also play a vital role in supporting the operational effectiveness of our Armed Forces. In return, the whole nation has a moral obligation to the members of the Naval Service, the Army and the Royal Air Force, together with their families. They deserve our respect and support, and fair treatment.
