Support for the Armed Forces community
It encapsulates the 2-way relationship that exists between the Armed Forces and the community in which they live.
We have also produced a ‘Welcome to Wales’ document for Serving Personnel and their families to make them aware of the support available on moving to Wales.
These 2 documents should be read in conjunction with the UK Government’s Armed Forces Covenant: Today and Tomorrow (external link). Together they set out the UK Government’s overall intent for supporting the Armed Forces community.
We are committed to providing support for our Armed Forces community. Our aim is to ensure we provide effective and efficient services which support their needs.
Since 2013 a number of new and developing commitments, both within Welsh Government policy areas and partner organisations have progressed.
Additional funding from the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) has also increased resources available to the third sector and local authorities to provide specific support in essential areas.
This relates to the decision by the Chancellor to transfer £35m from fines levied on banks for attempting to manipulate the LIBOR interest rates to the Ministry of Defence for use in supporting the Armed Forces Community managed under the Community Covenant Fund.
