How the Armed Forces Covenant can support Reservists

The Armed Forces Covenant is here to support you in your role as a reservist, helping you to balance your civilian work with being part of the armed forces and this section can share with you how.

Your employer can support you in maintaining this balance by signing the covenant. They can pledge specific measures to make it easier for you to meet your reserve service commitments, such as offering extra paid leave to attend annual training or career courses.

Some policies will apply to you and others will not. This section will direct you to the right place on GOV.UK and other trusted resources so that you can see what is available.

The Armed Forces Covenant website shares specific areas on where support is available which includes:

  • Maintaining your career
  • Getting financial advice
  • Access to healthcare
  • Having your say
