Bank of England signs Armed Forces Covenant

The governor of the Bank of England has signed the Armed Forces Covenant.

The covenant aims to help members of the armed forces community gain the same access to government and commercial services as other citizens.

Support is provided across a number of areas, including education and family well-being, having a home, starting a new career, access to healthcare, financial assistance, and discounted services.

“I am proud that today the Bank of England has entered into the Armed Forces Covenant,” said Andrew Bailey, governor of the Bank of England. “We recognise the value serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families bring to the Bank.

“By signing the Covenant, we hope to demonstrate our appreciation of their contributions and how we hope to support them in the future.”
