Armed Forces Covenant

We've pledged to make sure that our armed forces community is equal. Getting services like everyone else. 

We've signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant. We'll support the armed forces community in Barnsley. We've already achieved the Gold Award for the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme.

The armed forces community includes people who serve, or have served, in the armed forces, as well as reservists. It also includes people who care for, depend on, or are close family members of these groups of people.
