SRC UK are proud to re-sign, update and re-affirm our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant.

Air Commodore Jase Crawford RAF ‐ "The Armed Forces Covenant is of vital importance in ensuring the proper consideration and treatment of the military veteran community in the UK. I was delighted to support SRC UK in re-affirming their pledge to the Covenant and have now witnessed first-hand this commitment in action. A new company to the sector, SRC UK has pursued this aspect of their business with energy and genuine passion. I wish them and their veteran staff all the best for the future and look forward to the continued development of their links to and support of the veteran community".
The covenant is a pledge made to acknowledge the understanding that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and the society they serve.
