Our pledges

  • No member of the Armed Forces Community (AFC) 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.

Oxford Brookes will seek to uphold the principles of the AFC by:

  1. promoting the fact that we are an armed-forces friendly organisation
  2. endeavouring to offer a degree of flexibility in granting leave for Service spouses and partners before, during and after a partner’s deployment
  3. seeking to support our employees who choose to be members of the Reserve forces, including by accommodating their training and deployment where possible
  4. offering support to our local cadet units either in our local community or in local schools, where possible
  5. aiming to actively participate in Armed Forces Day
  6. supporting and promoting Reservists Day.
