Armed Forces Champions

Rutland has two Armed Forces Champions who help make sure that we deliver on our commitments to the local Armed Forces community.

They are:    

  • Helen Briggs, Chief Executive of Rutland County Council
  • Councillor Ian Razzell, Ward Member for Oakham South

As a demonstration of our commitment to in-Service and ex-Service personnel and their families, we've also signed the official Armed Forces Community Covenant.

"Rutland has a long tradition of supporting the Armed Forces. As a result, we have vast experience when it comes to helping service personnel relocate to our area and the work that has taken place in Rutland in recent years is often used as an example of best practice as to how local councils can work effectively with the military community. We take our responsibilities towards members of the Armed Forces, both past and present, very seriously and are extremely proud of the work we do."
