Harrow Green signs up to the Armed Forces Covenant

Apr 23, 2017
Harrow Green has announced that it has signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant to demonstrate its support for the armed forces community.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a pledge between the government and people of the UK and all those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces and their families. It supports current and ex-service personnel and their families through policy, projects and services.

The intention is to ensure their sacrifices and duty are respected and that they face no disadvantage compared to other citizens. The government is encouraging businesses, local authorities, charities and the public to sign up to the Covenant to show their support for all ex-service personnel.

Nigel Dews, Managing Director of Harrow Green said, “We are very pleased to have joined over 1,000 other businesses and organisations who have signed the pledge. In signing the Armed Forces Covenant we have stated that we are an armed forces-friendly organisation. In 2015 we were awarded a three-year contract to provide relocation and storage services for Service Family Accommodation for the MOD. It was a natural next step to sign the Covenant to further cement our commitment to supporting the armed forces and their families.”

Several Harrow Green employees are ex-service personnel and they bring extremely useful and relevant skills to the removals industry. Many of them are already experienced in HGV driving and have excellent abilities such as leadership, planning, team working and communication skills. They are a natural fit for the removals industry, which requires military precision timings and planning.
