Honouring the Armed Forces Covenant

Home Instead North Devon's Commitment

At Home Instead North Devon & Exmoor, we firmly believe that the men and women who serve our nation, along with their families, deserve our utmost support and respect. 

In this blog post, we are delighted to share our recent achievement of receiving the bronze award from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS).

Understanding the Armed Forces Covenant

The Armed Forces Covenant is not a charitable organisation; rather, it is a promise from the nation to those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces and their families. 

This covenant assures them that they will be treated fairly and will not face disadvantages in their day-to-day lives. 

It is a powerful symbol of our collective commitment to supporting those who make sacrifices for our country.

Our Pledge to the Covenant

At Home Instead North Devon & Exmoor, we are honoured to pledge our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant. 

We understand and deeply appreciate the value that Serving Personnel, both Regular and Reservists, Veterans, and military families bring to our community and our business. Their dedication, discipline, and sacrifice are qualities that we hold in high regard, and we are proud to be able to show our support.

The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Bronze Award

We are thrilled to announce that Home Instead North Devon & Exmoor has received the bronze award from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS). This recognition is a testament to our dedication to supporting defence personnel and their families. 

The ERS is a prestigious scheme that acknowledges and rewards UK employers for their commitment to the Armed Forces community.

The ERS operates on a tiered system, with bronze, silver, and gold awards

The bronze award, which we have received, signifies our commitment to providing a supportive and inclusive environment for those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces. 

It demonstrates our determination to go the extra mile in recognising and honouring their contributions.

Why This Matters:

Supporting the Armed Forces Covenant and receiving recognition through the ERS is not just a badge of honour for Home Instead North Devon & Exmoor. It is a reflection of our belief in the importance of giving back to those who have given so much to our nation. 

By actively supporting the Armed Forces community, we contribute to a more inclusive society where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

As we move forward, we remain dedicated to upholding the values of the Armed Forces Covenant and continuously improving our support for the Armed Forces community. Thank you for your service, and thank you for allowing us to be a part of this important mission.
