The Forensic Access Group is flying the flag in support of the Armed Forces Community by signing the Armed Forces Covenant.
The Covenant is a promise by the nation to support those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces, and their families, and to treat them with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives.
In signing the Covenant, the Forensic Access Group recognises the significant value that serving personnel, both regular and reservists, veterans and military families contribute to our business and to the country and shall continue to invest in their employment.
We, Forensic Access Group, will endeavour to uphold the key principles of the Armed Forces Covenant:
- Members of the Armed Forces Community should not face disadvantages arising from their service in the provision of public and commercial services.
- In some circumstances special provision may be justified, especially for those who have given the most, such as the injured or bereaved.
Jon Blows, CEO of Forensic Access Group, commented:
“From both a professional and personal perspective, I am delighted to sign up to the Covenant. As the son of an Army man, I have always felt it is vitally important to support those who have dedicated themselves to serving their country to transfer back into civilian life. The skills that Armed Forces personnel have gained often transfer extremely well into our group of businesses.
“As a organisation with a number of ex-armed forces and police force staff already in our ranks, we are keen to increase these numbers whenever possible.”
