C4i Systems has reinforced its commitment to the military community by signing the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant this week, a voluntary pledge from businesses and charitable organisations. Nic Organ signed on behalf of C4i Systems, and Brigadier Richard Carter, Commander 11 Signal & West Midland Brigade signed on behalf of the MoD.
By signing the covenant C4i Systems has vowed to uphold the covenant’s core principles; that no member of the armed forces should face disadvantage compared to any other citizen, and acknowledges that in some circumstances, special treatment should be afforded, particularly for the injured or bereaved.
The covenant focuses on helping members of the armed forces community have the same access to government and commercial services and products as any other citizen.
This support is provided in a number of areas including:
- education and family well-being
- having a home
- starting a new career
- access to healthcare
- financial assistance
- discounted services
Nic Organ, Head of Project and Risk Management said “ We are thrilled to pledge our commitment to the UK Armed Forces through the Corporate Covenant. With the majority of our workforce being Veterans we know first hand the sacrifices that are often made by forces personnel and their families. And it’s important that these sacrifices are still acknowledged as they rejoin civilian life”
