CANDLELIGHT CARE THE 190TH SOUTH WEST BUSINESS TO SIGN THE ARMED FORCES COVENANT
We are proud to become the 190th organisation to adopt the Armed Forces Covenant in the South West and be among the 1,300 businesses who have already made their pledges across the UK.
The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation, ensuring that those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces, and their families, are treated fairly. Businesses, from sole-trader to multinational, public bodies or charities who wish to support the Armed Forces community can sign the Covenant and publicly declare their commitments.
Wessex REED Rachael Brannagan said “It’s fantastic that Candlelight Care joins over 150 businesses across the South West that have pledged their support by adopting their own Armed Forces Covenants; it’s been a pleasure tailoring the pledges to the individual businesses to make them relevant and mutually beneficial.
Candlelight Care’s covenant includes working with service leavers and veterans as well as service spouses to provide a flexible working environment and employment opportunities taking into account the unique demands placed upon service personnel and their families.
To find out more about how an organisation can benefit from pledging their support to the Armed Forces community contact the Regional Employer Engagement Director, Rachael Brannagan on 01823 250118 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
