Armed Forces Covenant

BDCVS is proud to be the first organisation in Barking & Dagenham to sign the new Armed Forces Covenant.

Signing commits us to a promise of mutual support between the civilian community and the local armed forces community.

This will be reflected in our recruitment policies for staff and volunteers. We will make sure our staff and trustees have the understanding and skills to work with veterans. Our staff and trustees will support the delivery and development of services for veterans.

You can find out more about the Covenant at GOV.UK.

BDCVS is hosting a series of meetings to help support agencies and organisations to work with veterans. The aim is to increase awareness of services locally.
