The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise to those who serve, or who have served, in the armed forces and their families that they should be treated with fairness and respect and we're delighted to be signatories!
The agreement formalises Charlie Charlie One's commitment to supporting the Armed Forces community and recognises the contribution to the country that serving military personnel, veterans and their families have made and continue to make.
"I am proud that we have entered into the Armed Forces Covenant. We recognise the value serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families bring to our business. By signing the Covenant, we hope to demonstrate our appreciation of their contributions and how we hope to support them in the future", says Meredyth Grant, founder at Charlie Charlie One.
Charlie Charlie One is an active supporter of the armed forces, employing reservists, veterans and family members of serving personnel. In April 2022, the Charlie Charlie One team will take part in the Reading half-marathon to raise money for the military charity, Scotty's Little Soldiers. The team also works alongside not-for profit military organisations such as TechVets, a charity working to support veterans into tech and cyber security jobs and the ADVANCE Study, an academic research programme that is working to better understand the long-term impact of conflict on serving and former soldiers.
Minister for Defence People and Veterans Leo Docherty welcomes additional signatories to the Armed Forces Covenant;
"The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation to ensure the fair treatment of those who are serving, veterans and their families. I’m delighted to see even more organisations sign up to this pledge".
