Ballyclare demonstrates its support for the Armed Forces Community

Published: Tuesday, 31st January 2017

Ballyclare has proudly demonstrated its support for the Armed Forces Community by signing an Armed Forces Covenant. 

The Armed Forces Covenant represents a promise by the nation that those who serve or have served, and their families, are treated fairly.  All 407 local authorities in mainland Great Britain and two Northern Ireland councils have pledged to uphold the Armed Forces Covenant, as well as 1,000 organisations , including businesses and charities.

Ballyclare has pledged to:

  • endeavouring to offer flexibility in granting  leave for Service spouses and partners before, during and after a partner’s deployment;
  • support our employees who choose to be members of the Reserve forces, including by accommodating their training and deployment where possible;
  • offer support to our local cadet units, either in our local community or in local schools,
  • offering a discount to members of the Armed Forces Community.
