The Armed Forces Covenant sets out the relationship between the nation, the government and the armed forces. It recognises that the whole nation has a moral obligation to current and former members of the armed forces and their families, and it sets out how they should expect to be treated.
The Covenant Fund has £10 million each year to support the Armed Forces Covenant by funding projects which address specific priorities.

The MOD strongly recommends that all applicants approach the local Covenant Partnership for the area in which the project is to be delivered, at the earliest possible stage and well before an application is submitted. The MOD works with local Covenant Partnerships to ensure that the projects are well-connected and needed locally, and do not duplicate other provision. Local Covenant Partnerships can help potential applicants to develop their project and be able to suggest alternative sources of funding that will be more appropriate.
For North Yorkshire the key contacts for the local Covenant Partnership are Neil Irving firstname.lastname@example.org and Military Civil Integration, 4th Infantry Brigade and HQ North East 4X-MCI-GpMailbox@mod.gov.uk
