Armed Forces Covenant

On 23 June 2011, the Vale of Glamorgan launched a Community Covenant - the first of its kind in Wales.


If you are a member of the armed forces, a veteran, family member or widow(er), the Vale of Glamorgan Council is committed to providing easy access to the support you are entitled to.


The armed forces community refers to all those who are serving or have served in the Army, Navy, Royal Air Force and Merchant Navy (during conflict). The community also includes immediate family members and dependents of those who have served.


There are a wide range of services specifically designed for the armed forces community available from local government, Ministry of Defence and third sector organisations. It can often be confusing when trying to find the best organisations to help.

Whenever you request a service, please make us aware that you are a member of the armed forces community. There are often special rules that apply to members of the community in relation to local government services, and we want to ensure that you benefit from these.


Armed Forces Community Covenant Grant Scheme

The aim of the Community Covenant Grant Scheme is to financially support projects, at the local level, which strengthen the ties or the mutual understanding between members of the Armed Forces Community and the wider community in which they live.
