Remembrance Day, LJMU pledges support for armed forces community.
Ahead of Remembrance Day, LJMU has pledged its support for the armed forces community
LJMU has signed the Armed Forces Covenant to recognise the contribution to our country of serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families.
We have pledged to uphold the key principles of the covenant, meaning no member of the armed forces community should be disadvantaged and ensuring special treatment where appropriate for the injured and bereaved.
Through our commitment, LJMU will:
- Promote the fact that we are an armed forces-friendly organisation
- Offer flexibility to employees who are members of the reserve forces
- Support local military cadet units and armed forces charities
- Supporting national events, such as Armed Forces Day, Reserves Day, the Poppy Appeal and Remembrance activities
- Through innovative and collaborative scholarship and knowledge exchange, help to develop research-informed insight around the challenges and opportunities experienced by military veterans and their families
Mark Power, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive (interim), said: “I am extremely proud to sign the Armed Forces Covenant on behalf of Liverpool John Moores University.
“We recognise and value the contribution of serving personnel, veterans and military families to our society and will do all we can to support them through our civic engagement work and research and knowledge exchange.”
