Armed Forces Support

Armed Forces Day

Armed Forces Day celebrations begin on Monday 22 June 2020 when the Armed Forces Day flag is raised on buildings and famous landmarks around the country. Armed Forces Day this year is Saturday 27th June  2020 and, is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets. Showing support for the Armed Forces provides a much valued morale boost for the troops and their families. You can find out more about what they are doing at home and around the world by visiting the official sites of the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force.

Blaby District Council is proud to support serving and former members of the armed forces, including reservists, and their families.

Armed Forces Community Covenant

In November 2018 we re-signed the Armed Forces Community Covenant. The purpose of the Covenant is to encourage support for the Armed Forces Community working and residing in Blaby District and to recognise and remember the sacrifices made by this community, particularly those who have given the most. This includes in-service and ex-service personnel, their families and widow(ers) in Blaby District.

You can view a copy of the Council’s Armed Forces Community Covenant and supporting Action Plan by downloading them below.

Armed Forces Community Covenant Champion

Blaby District Council has a dedicated champion who will oversee our progress in meeting our commitments outlined in the Covenant. The champion is Cllr Mark Jackson. In October 2018 the Council was also awarded the bronze award from the Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme.

We can provide help to all residents on a range of issues, including housing, resident support services and benefits as well as health and leisure activities. There is also a lot of support available for the armed forces community from other organisations. Listed below are just some of the local and national resources available.
