Ascot Care is honoured to be fully committed to supporting The Armed Forces Covenant, a promise from the nation that those who serve or have previously served in the armed forces and their families are treated with fairness and respect.
The covenant supports members within the armed forces community and helps them gain access to government and commercial services and products as any other citizen. This support includes education, housing, employment and financial assistance.
The Armed Forces fulfil a responsibility to face danger at the risk of injury, and sacrificing some civilian freedoms, while their families play a vital role in supporting the operational effectiveness of the Armed Forces duty. The armed forces covenant recognises that the whole nation has a moral obligation to support and respect members of the armed forces and sets out the relationship between the nation, the government and the armed forces.
The Covenant is supported by the community covenant, which encourages local authorities and communities to help integrate the armed forces into local life and nurture the public understanding of issues affecting the armed forces community. It is also supported by the corporate covenant, a public pledge from businesses and organisations who are committed to their support of the armed forces community and demonstrate through recruitment and training.
