Proudly supporting those who serve

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation to those who serve or who have served, and their families, which says we will do all we can to ensure they are treated fairly and not disadvantaged in their day-to-day lives.

The Armed Forces Covenant relies on the people, communities, and businesses of the UK to actively support it in order to make a difference. The government is committed to supporting the Armed Forces community by working with a range of partners who have signed the Armed Forces Covenant. The Covenant brings together the government, businesses, local authorities, charities and the public in order to support those who serve.

Our pledge to the Armed Forces Covenant

WCS Group has been awarded the Bronze Award in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS), for actively demonstrating our support and contribution towards the armed forces community.

We continue to improve on our pledge and further support our Armed Forces by offering an additional 5 days paid leave, per year to support Reservist Training and Exercises, and 5 days paid leave for Adult Cadet Force Volunteers to attend support work for events.

“We recognise the value serving personnel, reservisits, veterans and military families bring to our business and to our country and will seek to uphold the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant”.
