15 March 2021

The legislation introduces a duty of due regard to the Covenant principles on local public bodies, in key areas of health, housing, and education.
The Armed Forces Covenant Annual Report, published each December, outlines progress we have made as a nation to strengthen the Covenant across the UK.
