Community Covenant

Community Covenant

Crawley’s Community Covenant was signed at the Armed Forces Day celebration on 29 June 2013 by members of the Armed Forces and Crawley Borough Council.

Armed Forces Day raises public awareness of the contribution made to our country by those who serve and have served in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces.

It also gives the nation an opportunity to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community, from currently serving troops to service families and from veterans to cadets.

Aims of the Community Covenant

The Covenant is a voluntary pledge of mutual support between the local community and the armed forces; encouraging understanding and awareness of issues affecting it.
Local authorities and the armed forces community are encouraged to work together to establish a community covenant in their area in order to:

  • Encourage local communities to support the armed forces community in their areas and to nurture public understanding and awareness of issues affecting them
  • Recognise and remember the sacrifices faced by the armed forces community
  • Encourage activities which help to integrate the armed forces community into local life
  • To encourage the armed forces community to help and support the wider community, whether through participation in events and joint projects or other forms of engagement
