The Armed Forces Covenant is a voluntary statement of mutual support between the civilian community in Lincolnshire and the local armed forces community, and outlines the moral obligations between the nation, the Government and the armed forces at a local level.
Lincolnshire CCG has signed up to the Lincolnshire Armed Forces Covenant in partnership with a wide range of organisations including local councils, police, members of the voluntary sector and the civilian community. See more information about the partnership
The aims of the Covenant in Lincolnshire are to:
- encourage local communities to support the Armed Forces community
- raise awareness of issues affecting the Armed Forces community
- recognise and remember the sacrifices faced by the Armed Forces community
- help to integrate the Armed Forces community into local life
- encourage the Armed Forces community to help and support the wider community
Dr Kevin Hill, Lincolnshire Armed Forces Covenant representative, on behalf of Lincolnshire CCG:
“We are extremely proud of our local men and women who have served in the past and/or continue to serve us now, and being a part of the Lincolnshire Armed Forces Covenant is perhaps the best way for us to demonstrate this. As a county we have a very long association with the armed forces and many of us also have that association on a personal level. Being responsible for commissioning healthcare in the county, it seems logical that we would want to do everything possible to support both current members of the armed forces and veterans.”
