Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant
UK Power Networks has pledged its support to Defence by signing a forces-friendly corporate covenant in 2015.
“We are proud to join the ranks of businesses that have formally pledged their support to ex-military personnel reservists and their families. In signing the covenant we recognise the sacrifices that our servicemen and women make for their country in the course of their duties and they thoroughly deserve our gratitude and full support.”
