Published on: 24 November 2022
The Royal Air Force Museum has received a Ministry of Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Silver Award, in recognition for support of the Armed Forces Covenant.
The ERS awards were launched in 2014 to recognise employer support for the wider principles of the Armed Forces Covenant.
The scheme encompasses bronze, silver and gold awards for the employers that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to Defence and the Armed Forces community. This includes, the Reserves, Service leavers, Armed Forces veterans, the wounded, injured and sick, cadets, military spouses or partners and their families.
RAF Museum Head of HR and Volunteering, Kam Sandhu-Patel said:
‘We are thrilled to have achieved the Silver Award in recognition for our commitment to the Armed Forces community. We are particularly proud of our staff team who have served in the armed forces or who currently serve as reservists, and the Silver Award is a testament to our commitment of support as a national museum.’
The Museum was presented the Silver Award by Air Commodore Gavin Hellard, at an event held the National Memorial Arboretum.
