Online – 2 November: 1200 to 1300
This November, it will have been ten years since the Armed Forces Covenant was first enshrined in UK legislation. Having campaigned for the Covenant to be included in the Armed Forces Act 2011, and having championed its observance across society ever since, the Royal British Legion and its sister charity, Poppyscotland, will mark this significant anniversary with the launch of an independent report reflecting on the Covenant’s impact on the wellbeing of serving personnel, veterans, and their families.
Our report celebrates the advancements in outcomes, understanding, funding and services for the Armed Forces community over the past decade, which have been overseen by government at all levels, as well as businesses and voluntary organisations. The report also makes recommendations for further strengthening delivery of the Covenant where appropriate, ensuring that it remains fit for purpose into the next decade.
We will be launching our report virtually on 2 November, between 12:00 and 13:00 from the RBL’s Head Office in London. We are delighted to be joined by a panel of experts from across society and the UK, who will draw on their own insight and experience of working with the Covenant and the Armed Forces community to reflect on some of the key themes of our report.

The event is free to view, and you are welcome to share the link with others who you feel may be interested. The launch will be recorded and available to view later, should you be unable to attend the live stream.
