Conwy reaffirms support for Armed Forces community

Conwy County Borough Council has reaffirmed its commitment to support the Armed Forces community by re-signing the Armed Forces Covenant.

The aim of the Community Covenant is to encourage local communities to support the Armed Forces community in their area; promote understanding and awareness among the public of issues affecting service community and recognise and remember the sacrifices made.

The Community Covenant was signed at an event at Venue Cymru, Llandudno on 21 March.

Cllr Liz Roberts is Conwy’s Armed Forces Champion, leading within the Council on issues affecting the Armed Forces community.

She said, “Conwy first signed-up to the covenant in 2013, and I’m delighted that we’re reaffirming our pledge to support the Armed Forces community.”

“It’s an honour and a privilege to have the opportunity to work with such dedicated people and I’ll continue do my best to represent the veterans, servicemen and women, and their families in our communities.”

Conwy County Borough Council first signed the Armed Forces Covenant in 2013, and was awarded the Gold Level Defence Employer Recognition Scheme in 2019 and is currently working towards renewing the Award.

Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS): The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme acknowledges employers who have provided exceptional support to the armed forces community and defence by going above and beyond their Armed Forces Covenant pledges. Through a three tier approach of bronze, silver and gold awards, the scheme recognises the different levels of commitment provided by employers. The gold award was originally awarded to Conwy County Borough Council in 2019 with a requirement for this to be revalidated every five years.
