This petition was submitted during the 2010–2015 Conservative – Liberal Democrat coalition government

Petition Homeless Soldiers - Make The Armed Forces Covenant Law

More details

The government created the Armed Forces Covenant 4 years ago, to protect and help our ex service personnel, however it is still not Law.

The covenant was set up to offer all ex Armed Services personnel across Navy, Air Force & Army, equal rights and benefits for such things as housing, health etc.

It was estimated that last year the UK had some 11,000 homeless ex service personnel, and this is growing.

This e-petition was set up to create enough signatures to enable a parliamentary debate, and ultimately make the Covenants pledge Law.

Here is the Covenant: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/49469/the_armed_forces_covenant.pdf
