Solicitors North Yorkshire Law has pledged its commitment to support the UK’s military.
The firm, which has offices in Scarborough, Whitby and York, has signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant to formally show its determination to treat military reservists, veterans and their families fairly – whether as employees or as clients.
“Scarborough is hosting the national Armed Forces Day event this June so we wanted to do our bit to show our support,” said partner Natalie Foster.
“As a company, we are passionate about making the justice system accessible to all and this is just another way of reaching out to a community which may need reassurance that it will be treated the way it deserves.”
As well as signing the Armed Forces Covenant, the company is also offering a 10 per cent discount to the military and veterans.
“We take our social responsibilities seriously and try to support community initiatives across the East Coast area and York,” said Natalie.
The Armed Forces Covenant is part of the Government’s Defence Employer Recognition Scheme and is administered in the area by the Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association for Yorkshire and The Humber (RFCA).
The RFCA’s regional employer engagement director Richard Lenton said: “The Armed Forces Covenant is a great way for companies and organisations to show their commitment to the military. With Scarborough soon to play centre stage in one of the biggest military events of the year, we are delighted to have North Yorkshire Law on board and hope others across the East Coast will follow suit.”
