Armed Forces Community Covenant

What is the West Lothian Armed Forces Community Covenant ("WLAFCC")?

WLAFCC Signing
The WLAFCC is a voluntary statement of mutual support between a civilian community and its local armed forces community. It is intended to complement the Armed Forces Covenant which outlines the moral obligations between the nation, the government and the armed forces at a local level. The aim of the Community Covenant is to encourage communities, charities, businesses, local government and health care providers to support all our armed forces across West Lothian. This not only includes serving personnel, but also their families and veterans, particularly where they have been injured or bereaved. By doing this we recognise what our armed forces have done for us and continue to do on a daily basis.
