We are delighted to announce that we have successfully re-validated our Silver Employee Recognition from the Armed Forces Covenant.

According to the Armed Forces Covenant, the prestigious award is given to organisations who ‘demonstrate support for service personnel issues and employ at least one member of the Armed Forces community, as well as supporting the employment of Cadet Instructors, Armed Forces Veterans (including the wounded, injured and sick) and military spouses/partners.'

As a charity, we provide care and support to 115 ex-service personnel every night through our dedicated Homes for Veterans. Many of the staff providing support to the Veterans are themselves from a military background and can relate to the issues they are going through.

Andrew Lord, Alabaré Chief Executive commented:

“At Alabaré, we are immensely proud of our role in working with those who have served in our Armed Forces. We recognise the incredible skill-sets that those who have served in the Forces are able to bring in to the workplace and help us support those in need.”

Johnny Mercer, Minister for Defence People and Veterans said:

“The breadth and diversity of the winners this year shows how business support for the Armed Forces continues to grow no matter the sector, company size or location. I am grateful for the positive attitude and flexible policies these organisations have adopted towards the defence community, which is testament to the fantastic contribution our serving personnel, veterans and their families can make to any organisation.

I am delighted that so many companies are supporting our people and that, through this scheme, we can give them the public recognition they deserve.”
