This year the following employers from across the North West of England have been awarded Gold:

  • Cumbria County Council
  • Essar Oil (revalidation)
  • Forward Assist Recruitment
  • Greater Manchester Police
  • Lancashire County Council
  • Veteran HQ Liverpool
  • Wigan Council

Johnny Mercer, Minister for Defence People and Veterans said:

The breadth and diversity of the winners this year shows how business support for the Armed Forces continues to grow no matter the sector, company size or location. I am grateful for the positive attitude and flexible policies these organisations have adapted towards the defence community, which is testament to the fantastic contribution our serving personnel, veterans and their families can make to any organisation. I am delighted that so many companies are supporting our people and that, through this scheme, we can give them the public recognition they deserve.
