On 24th June 2013, the Council and a number of partners signed up to a Covenant which aims to support the armed forces community in the Neath Port Talbot area.
This will inspire greater public understanding and awareness of issues affecting the Armed Forces community in the county borough.
The council has two Armed Forces Champions, Councillor Wyndham Griffiths and Councillor Tim Bowen.
The Armed Forces Champions help raise the profile of the Armed Forces community and strive to achieve greater public understanding and awareness of the issues affecting it. They will advocate on its behalf and aim to ensure its interests are properly considered by and prioritised within the Council’s policies and strategies.
