Priorities and strategies
We have pledged to build stronger relationships between the military and civilian communities.
Armed Forces Covenant
This is a voluntary statement of mutual support between a civilian community and local armed forces community. Our community covenant pledges to scrutinise all aspects of our operations to ensure that members of the armed forces, veterans and their families are treated correctly and not disadvantaged as a consequence of having served.
Weston-super-Mare was the first town in the south west to adopt the Heroes Welcome scheme. The scheme involves businesses displaying a Heroes Welcome sticker to indicates a special welcome to members of the forces. The scheme is not a registered charity or a discount scheme. It it is free to join and members may choose to offer discounts or service upgrades.
