Supporting Britain's Reservists
Pennine Care is proud to have been granted a Silver Award under the government’s Employer Recognition Scheme for support to the Armed Forces community.
The award means the Trust has demonstrated its commitment to military veterans and reservists as well as the spouses, partners and families of serving personnel, and creates a positive working atmosphere for them.
It also recognises the Trust’s commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant which is a promise to all those who serve or have served, and their families to ensure they are not disadvantaged by their service to their country.
