Armed forces

The armed forces community includes currently serving personnel, veterans, volunteer and regular reservists.  It also includes people who care for, depend on, or are close family members of these groups of people. The cadets and cadet force adult volunteers are also part of our armed forces community.

We've pledged to make sure that our armed forces community is supported in Barnsley. To do so, we've signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant. We've also achieved the Gold Award for the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme.
