Lancashire County Council and the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes


Lancashire County Council signed the Armed Forces Covenant in November 2013 and has since implemented a number of policies in order to live up to the commitment it made more than five years ago.


It is proposed to strengthen the county council's role as an employer of members of the Armed Forces community through the preparation of a formal expression of interest for a 2020 Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Award. Where appropriate, this process may involve the adoption of new procedures to promote the interests of the Armed Forces community in Lancashire.


This is deemed to be a Key Decision and the provisions of Standing Order C19 have been complied with.



The Cabinet approved the recommendation(s) as set out in the report.
