The Armed Forces Corporate Covenant

SP Services are proud to have signed the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant to further show our support of all our brave men and women, past, present and future that play such a vital role in defending the realm.

SP’s Managing director, Steve Bray, said “We have always worked closely with the military and I personally have the utmost respect for the job they do. Whenever we have a raffle or a fund raising day 95% of the time the proceeds go to a charity connected with the Military.”

“Our Armed Forces Day celebrations are always very popular with our staff and this year we made a special effort to dress up the building so the local Military personnel from MOD Donnington could see we fully support them.”

“SP’s new state of the art headquarters, Bastion House, named in honour of our brave forces in Afghanistan, has extensive facilities including fully equipped meeting rooms that we offer, free of charge, to Armed Forces Personnel to hold training sessions and seminars,” continued Steve

The Corporate Covenant is a powerful tool to support our Armed Forces Community and it is the responsibility of organisations to consider how they can support this important pledge. 

The corporate covenant is a voluntary pledge made by organisations who wish to demonstrate their concrete support for the armed forces community. It complements the armed forces covenant and sits alongside the community covenant.
