Community Covenant

The Hertfordshire Community Covenant is a mutual commitment between public, private and voluntary organisations and the serving or retired Armed Forces community in the county.

The Covenant aims to ensure that no serving or retired Armed Forces personnel are disadvantaged as a result of the work that they do and that services such as education, housing, advice services and public transport have all been reviewed.

The Community Covenant Grant Scheme delivers financial support to projects at a local level, which strengthen the ties between members of the Armed Forces Community and the wider community in which they live.

Mouse mats and leaflets have been sent to GP surgeries and other health venues as part of campaign to raise awareness of issues affecting veterans and the team is busy delivering presentations to key organisations across the county.  There will also be a specific workshop at the Hertfordshire Public Health Conference in November to raise awareness of this important issue.

If you have a project which you'd like the Covenant Board to support, please visit or contact
