Our Armed Forces Community

Council staff are encouraged to use a new e-learning package to help them learn more about the Armed Forces Community and the support available to them in Midlothian.

Raising awareness

The aim is to raise awareness of the Armed Forces Covenant, which is supported by Midlothian Council. The Covenant is a way of making sure that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated with fairness and respect.

Providing support

“I would encourage everyone to use this easy to access e-learning module,” explained Midlothian Provost and Armed Forces Champion, Councillor Peter Smaill. “It provides an overview of the unique challenges of Service life and sets out how our employees can support the Armed Forces Community at a local level.
