Suffolk: Armed Forces Honoured

Support pledge for Suffolk's Armed Forces and their families.

Community and Armed Forces leaders will gather at Endeavour House on Thursday to sign a landmark covenant pledging support for Suffolk's Armed Forces community of serving personnel, Veterans, their families and widow(er)s working and living in Suffolk.

The Community Covenant will declare mutual support and practical help for Forces personnel and their families and is part of a £30 million national scheme, launched by the Ministry of Defence, to improve links between the military and civilian communities.

The funding will be used to support projects across the UK, such as support to veterans, raising GP awareness of Combat Stress and raising public awareness of service family life and deployments overseas.

A similar ceremony and covenant signing happened in Norfolk back in March this year.
