Community Covenant (Military Covenant)

Adur & Worthing Councils have signed up to their own Military Covenants as part of the Community Covenant Scheme launched by the Government in 2011 after a campaign by the Royal British Legion (RBL).

Adur and Worthing have been working with their respective local armed forces communities to establish a community covenant in their area to:

  • encourage local communities to support the armed forces communities across Adur and Worthing and nurture public understanding and awareness of issues affecting the armed forces community
  • recognise and remember the sacrifices faced by the armed forces community
  • encourage activities to integrate the armed forces community into local life
  • encourage the armed forces community to help and support the wider community, whether through participation in events and joint projects, or other forms of engagement

Captain Andrew Layzell, Officer Commanding B Company POWRR (Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment), said:

“It is a really good initiative which strengthens the bond between the military and the communities we recruit from.”

The Covenants are available below:

Full contact details are included in each of the Covenants above.

Details about the Covenant can be found in the committee report below:
