Armed Forces

In 2012 Hartlepool Borough Council signed the North East Armed Forces Community Charter and established our own Armed Forces Community Covenant, to encourage support from the Armed Forces Community in our town. The Community Covenant was refreshed in 2019, with additional co-signatories from across the private, public and voluntary and community sectors.

The basis for our Covenant continuing to be that: - 

"Those who serve in the Armed Forces, whether Regular or Reserve, those who have served in the past, and their families, should face no disadvantage compared to other citizens in the provision of public and commercial services. Special consideration is appropriate in some cases, especially for those who have given most such as the injured and the bereaved."
