UK South West Region Armed Forces Covenant Champions Conference 2018 Report

December, 2018

This report details the aims and outcomes of the 2018 conference held in the South West Region of the UK, as part of the commitment to championing the Armed Forces Covenant. This was the inaugural conference for the South West and recognises the establishment of the role of the region’s Armed Forces Project Officer. The aim of the conference was to recognise the importance of collaboration in upholding the Covenant, in sharing best practice and learning from what other regions and organisations have achieved in their work for the Armed Forces community.

This 2018 conference report follows a recent report on an action research study from Shared Intelligence, commissioned by councils in the South West, to understand the needs of the Armed Forces Community in that particular region.
