Armed Forces Community Covenant

Dartford Borough Council is committed to giving fair support to members of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families and has signed an Armed Forces Community Covenant.

The Armed Forces Community Covenant is a voluntary statement of mutual support between a civilian community and its local Armed Forces Community. Its purpose is to encourage support for the Armed Forces Community working and residing in Dartford and to recognise and remember the sacrifices made by members of the Armed Forces Community, particularly those who have given the most. This includes in-service and ex-service personnel, their families and widow(ers) in Dartford.

Commemorative events
