On Friday 14th June, Chief Minister Howard Quayle reaffirmed the Government’s commitment to supporting Manx residents who’ve served in the Armed Forces. He re-signed the Armed Forces Community Covenant, the document aims to help those from military backgrounds access services, such as mental health support, sheltered housing and integration into local life.
Mr Quayle said it was “incredibly important” to respect those in service.
The covenant is described as a “voluntary statement of mutual support between the civilian population of the Isle of Man and the armed forces community”.
We look forward to working with the Isle of Man Government as they work towards the Defence Relationship Management (DRM ) Employer Recognition Scheme.
