This is the first Census that will include the questions relating to military service, which will collect data on who are veterans from the Armed Forces. The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation that those who serve and have served, and their families should be treated fairly.
The government, local authorities, the wider public sector, charities, commercial organisations, and civil society all have a role in supporting the Armed Forces community. This includes support to veterans regarding employment, healthcare, housing, education, and financial services. See www.armedforcescovenant.gov.uk
