Armed Forces Covenant

The Armed Forces Covenant is the nation’s commitment to those who proudly protect our nation.

It is a pledge that together we acknowledge and understand that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives.

The AHSN NENC has pledged its support to, and has signed, The Armed Forces Covenant. As an organisation we truly believe that both we and those who serve or who have served in the armed forces mutually benefiting from the potential opportunities of employing a reservist or ex serving military personnel may bring.
