What is the Armed Forces Covenant?

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation to those who serve. It says we will do all we can to ensure they are treated fairly and not disadvantaged in their day-to-day lives. This includes offering injured servicemen and women and bereaved families extra support where appropriate.

Royal Bank of Scotland will endeavour in our business dealings to uphold the key principles of the Armed Forces Covenant, which are:

We will continue to support the Forces Help to Buy Scheme to enable more serving personnel to purchase their own home and enable them to rent the property out when serving overseas at no additional cost
