Woking Armed Forces Covenant

The Woking Armed Forces Covenant is a formal statement of mutual support between the civilian community and the local armed forces community. 

It is intended to complement the Armed Forces Covenant, which outlines the moral obligation between the nation, the government and the armed forces. The covenant aims to raise awareness of issues affecting the armed forces community and provide support through assisting with health and wellbeing, housing, leisure and culture, housing and employment.

The covenant also gives Woking community organisations the opportunity to bid for UK wide funding via the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust.

Woking Borough Council Military Advisory Panel
