Armed Forces Covenant

We commit 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.


The Armed Forces Covenant is an enduring covenant between The People of the United Kingdom and Her Majesty’s Government and all those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces of the Crown and their Families. 


The first duty of Government is the defence of the realm. Our Armed Forces fulfil that responsibility on behalf of the Government, sacrificing some civilian freedoms, facing danger and, sometimes, suffering serious injury or death as a result of their duty. Families also play a vital role in supporting the operational effectiveness of our Armed Forces. In return, the whole nation has a moral obligation to the members of the Naval Service, the Army and the Royal Air Force, together with their families. They deserve our respect and support, and fair treatment.


Those who serve in the Armed Forces, whether Regular or Reserve, those who have served in the past, and their families, should face no disadvantage compared to other citizens in the provision of public and commercial services. Special consideration is appropriate in some cases, especially for those who have given most such as the injured and the bereaved.


This obligation involves the whole of society: it includes voluntary and charitable bodies, private organisations, and the actions of individuals in supporting the Armed Forces. Recognising those who have performed military duty unites the country and demonstrates the value of their contribution. This has no greater expression than in upholding this Covenant.


We {n}.bora will endeavour in our business dealings to uphold the key principles of the Armed Forces Covenant, which are:

  • no member of the Armed Forces Community should face disadvantage in the provision of public and commercial services compared to any other citizen 
  • in some circumstances special treatment may be appropriate especially for the injured or bereaved.


{n}.bora recognises the value serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families bring to our business. We will seek to uphold the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant, by:

  • promoting the fact that we are an armed forces-friendly organisation; our website and social media feeds will include content detailing our commitment to honour the Armed Forces Covenant.
  • seeking to support the employment of veterans young and old and working with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP), in order to establish a tailored employment pathway for Service Leavers; we are registering with CTP RightJob.
  • striving to support the employment of Service spouses and partners; we will automatically move any employment application from Service spouses and partners to interview stage.
  • endeavouring to offer a degree of flexibility in granting leave for Service spouses and partners before, during and after a partner’s deployment; we offer a flexible working and leave package whereby leave can be taken before it is accrued, and responsibilities can be shared to ensure individuals do not face the dilemma of conflicting demands between work and their personal life.
  • seeking to support our employees who choose to be members of the Reserve forces, including by accommodating their training and deployment where possible; we offer a flexible working and leave package whereby leave can be taken before it is accrued, and responsibilities can be shared to ensure individuals do not face the dilemma of conflicting demands between work and their personal life.
  • offering support to our local cadet units, either in our local community or in local schools, where possible; we make annual donations to the Sea Cadets. 
  • aiming to actively participate in Armed Forces Day; our social media feeds will include content participating in the #saluteourforces initiative and we are subscribed to the Armed Forces Day newsletter to ensure we are notified of further opportunities to get involved.
  • offering a discount to members of the Armed Forces Community; we offer discounted rates to members of the Armed Forces Community and businesses owned by members of the Armed Forces Community past and present.


We will publicise these commitments through our literature and/or on our website, setting out how we will seek to honour them and inviting feedback from the Service community and our customers on how we are doing.
