Supporting the Armed ForcesAug 2, 2018
The Armed Forces Covenant is a pledge to acknowledge and understand that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect.
Public and private sector organisations that wish to support the armed forces community can sign the covenant and make promises on how they will demonstrate their support.
On Tuesday 17th July 2018 our CEO, Richard Thomas signed the covenant on behalf of We Fight Any Claim.
In doing so, we as a business pledge to:
“Honour the Armed Forces Covenant and support the Armed Forces Community.
We recognise the value serving personnel both regular and reservists; veterans and military families contribute to our business and our country.”
We will uphold the Armed Forces Covenant by supporting the employment of veterans and, working with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP), will establish a tailored employment pathway for service leavers.
We will support the employment of service spouses and partners and will aim to offer a degree of flexibility in granting leave before, during and after their partner’s deployment.
We will also support our employees who choose to be members of the reserve forces by accommodating their training and deployment where possible.
Laura Calloway has balanced reserve life with working for We Fight Any Claim for a number of years now:
“We Fight Any Claim has always been really supportive of my role within the reservists.
I have just returned from a two-week diving course in Cyprus and have not long completed drone training in California.
We Fight Any Claim has always allowed me to have the time off I need, fully paid.”
