Community Covenant

Armed Forces Covenant

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation that those who serve or have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly.

The Salford Armed Forces Community Covenant was proudly signed on Wednesday 2 October 2013, committing Salford City Council and the local armed forces community to work together to support armed forces personnel and their families past and present.

Salford Council have two Armed Forces Veterans Champions, Councillors Warner and Morris acting on a voluntary basis to work closely with armed forces personnel and their families to ensure that their voice is heard across the council and our partners in the city.

Joanne Farrell from the City Mayor’s Office is working with Councillors Warner and Morris to develop policies and programmes to ensure that armed forces personnel, their families past and present are not disadvantaged.  Joanne is also assisting veterans with individual concerns in areas of housing, benefits, health etc and can be contacted on 0161 793 3432 or email

There are a number of web pages dedicated to providing a range of avenues for advice and guidance.
