Larry Gold, Acting CEO of Trafford Housing Trust, and Deborah Elgar from CleanStart, which employs ex-military personnel, were joined by Major David Braddock from the British Army Friday to officially sign the covenant.
The covenant is a commitment to those who serve or have served in the armed forces and their families, to ensure they are treated with fairness and respect and have the same access to housing and services.
Larry Gold said: “At Trafford Housing Trust, we recognise the huge contribution our armed forces make to our communities and our country. That is why we want to do everything we can to ensure all service personnel, both regular and reservist, current and former, veterans and military families, have access to the housing, employment and other support services they need.
“We are very proud to sign this covenant as a way of demonstrating our ongoing commitment to those who dedicate their lives to serving us.”
The covenant, established in 2011, has currently been signed by more than 2,500 businesses and offers help in a number of areas including buying or renting a home, starting a career, education and family wellbeing, access to healthcare, financial support and discounted services.
