This standard outlines how adult social care will honour the Armed Forces Covenant.
The Armed Forces Covenant sets a framework for how the armed forces community can expect to be treated. It is not possible to specify in detail how it should be applied in every case and at every time.
We are signed up to support and honour the Armed Forces Covenant along with other local authorities within Dorset, as part of the Dorset Armed Forces Community Covenant.
The above is a Borough of Poole document from pre 1 April 2019 (unless otherwise stated). It has been adopted by BCP Council and will, in time, be replaced by a BCP Council document.
This document applies to service users from the Poole locality and to staff carrying out functions that relate to these individuals. Minor changes may have been made to ensure contact information and website links are correct and relevant from 1 April 2019.
All policies will now be reviewed as part of a planned schedule, following the Borough’s transition to BCP Council on 1 April 2019.
