Oxleas achieves Armed Forces Covenant Bronze Award

News: Armed Forces Covenant - Bronze Award logo

We have been given the Bronze Award in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme marking our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant.

It recognises the work we are doing to support members of the armed forces and their families in accessing timely healthcare and supporting the employment of ex-veterans.

Non Executive Director Stephen Dilworth, who is a member of the trust working party taking this forward, said: "Members of the Armed Forces face enormous challenges both whilst on active service but also when they adjust to life as veterans. This impacts on their families and the communities in which they live.

Consequently it is in all our interests to offer healthcare and social support appropriate for their needs. That attainment of the Covenant Bronze Award is an important milestone in this programme and I look forward to even greater progress as we develop this service."
