Armed Forces Covenant Lead Member for Cornwall Council.

The aim of the Cornwall Community Covenant is to encourage support for the Armed Forces Community stationed and residing in Cornwall and to recognise and remember the sacrifices made by members of the Armed Forces Community which includes serving and former armed forces personnel, veterans, their families and widowers in Cornwall.

As an Armed Forces veteran myself, I wholeheartedly support the Council’s commitment in close partnership with the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force, RBL and SAAFA to the Covenant.  I very much welcome the development of this new section on Cornwall Council’s website dedicated to the Armed Forces community. The aim of this single point of information is to help ensure that Forces personal, their families and veterans in Cornwall know about the support which is available to them.

Whether you are currently in the Armed Forces or you are leaving the armed forces you and your family often need advice on issues including health, education, housing, training and jobs. The council is here to support you and your family with these issues.

Please read the covenant and when you receive services from any of those who have signed it consider whether we have met the standards of commitment.

We need your help to identify and deliver sustainable services. If you do encounter difficulties or negative experiences in accessing services from the council or any of our partners we want to hear from you. Please contact us through the following dedicated email address communitycove@cornwall.gov.uk.

We are really keen to hear from you to ensure that by working together we can make a difference.
