Communities and safety
Armed Forces communities
Liverpool City Council is committed to supporting people serving in the regular and reserve Armed Forces and veterans, as well as their families.
As part of this commitment, we have developed Service Leavers Liverpool – a dedicated website for people who are preparing to leave the Armed Forces and planning to make their home in Liverpool.
Service Leavers Liverpool has plenty of information on how to get a job, find a new home, and stay fit and well.
Strategic Group for Armed Forces Communities
We also develop services for Liverpool's Armed Forces communities. It oversees the delivery of the Armed Forces Community Covenant and ensures that the welfare needs of service personnel, veterans and their families are captured in the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment for Military Veterans.
The group is chaired by the Armed Forces Champion for Liverpool, Councillor Roy Gladden. Key strategic partners include representatives from NHS Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group, Liverpool Veterans HQ, Armed Forces Charities and representatives from each of the services. The group meets on a quarterly basis.
