Armed Forces Covenant

We are pleased to announce that on the 17th January 2019, Kays Medical signed the Armed Forces Covenant, joining a 3000-strong list of companies and local authorities who have publicly pledged to support the Armed Forces and their families.

Signed by Managing Director Benjamin Ludzker, the Armed Forces Covenant is a promise to ensure those who serve or have served in the UK Armed Forces, as well as their families, are treated fairly in the workplace.

Kays Medical recognises the value serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families can bring to our business and we will endeavour to uphold the key principles of the Armed Forces Covenant, which are:

  • no member of the Armed Forces Community should face disadvantage in the provision of public and commercial services compared to any other citizen
  • in some circumstances special treatment may be appropriate especially for the injured or bereaved.

Discussing the signing, David Stott, Kays Medical’s Operations Director and former British Army said “The signing of the Armed Forces Covenant shows Kays Medical’s ongoing commitment to not only those in the Armed Forces, but their families too. As former British Army, I am pleased to work for an organisation that supports people serving in our Armed Forces as well as veterans and their families. I understand from personal experience the culture shock of going back in to a civilian role; the transition can be difficult, but that’s what makes programmes like this, and the support from companies like Kays Medical, so important”.

Moving forward, Kays Medical will continue to support and encourage individuals who serve, whether regular or reservists, as well as those who have served in the past, as they look to start the next stage of their lives and we encourage all organisations to do the same.

The Armed Forces Covenant – Proudly supporting those who serve
