Bury raises the flag and reinforces commitment to veterans during Armed Forces Week

As a proud Fusilier town Bury is showing its support and commitment to veterans and serving armed forces personal during Armed Forces Week (24-29 June).

In 2023 Bury Council was awarded a gold award in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme.

The highest level achievable, the award is in recognition of the council signing up to the Armed Forces Covenant and demonstrating its commitment to supporting military veterans and reservists in society and in employment with the council.

This included recognising military veterans as a protected characteristic and giving this group the same attention and protections that we would for all protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010

The council provides a range of support and promotes support available elsewhere:

There’s further help available for individual members of the armed forces and veterans who are struggling with the cost of living on the council’s website at: Let’s manage tough times – Bury Council

There’s also free membership of our leisure centres for serving military personnel and veterans
