Establishing and Developing Effective Partnership Working and Collaboration

This section is aimed at helping to encourage partnership between councils and other organisations in delivering the Armed Forces Covenant. Collaboration and partnership working includes guidance on both informal and formal networks. Examples may range from highly localised forums to examples that cover much larger regions.

The repository was designed so that future work on the Armed Forces Covenant would develop rather than duplicate anything that has been created previously. This section will therefore provide processes or methods that can be lifted and used in your local authority.

A detailed document that lists the aimed actions for delivering the covenant in a wide array of policy areas.

This section is dedicated to helping Local Authorities build the groundwork in understanding the local Armed Forces environment.
