Our Committment to the Armed Forces

Erewash Borough Council has signed up to the community covenant and Councillor John Sewell is our Armed Forces Covenant 'Champion', making sure we achieve our committment to serving personnel, veterans, their families and the bereaved.

Many local organisations and branches of national organisations offer support for members of the armed forces community and you can find out more by clicking here.

The Armed Forces Covenant Fund

The Armed Forces Covenant funds local projects which strengthen the ties or mutual understanding between members of the armed forces community and the wider communities in which they live.

Find out about applying to the £10 million per annum Covenant Fund to support the armed forces community.

The funding priorities for April 2018 to March 2019 are as follows:

  • Armed Forces Covenant: local grants and digital development. 
  • Armistice and Armed Forces Communities: supporting local communities to consider the Armed Forces Covenant and its relevance today in the context of the World War 1 commemorations.

Further priorities will be announced in the coming months.
