The Armed Forces Covenant



The Armed Forces Covenant is a pledge that acknowledges and understands that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives.

Rise and Recline are proud to support those who serve

Rise and Recline, a specialist furniture and beds manufacturer  based in Long Eaton, Derbyshire, is proud to sign up to the Armed Forces Covenant and look forward to supporting serving and ex-service personnel.

How Rise and Recline support ex-service personnel

The covenant supports serving personnel, service leavers, veterans, and their families and is fulfilled by the different groups that have committed to making a difference.


“Rise and Recline are committed to helping ex-service personnel, and are happy to review any CV, conduct practice interviews, or any other way seen fit. Anyway we can assist you, we will - even if it's simply by giving you the time to understand your needs and the possible ways you feel we can help. Whatever you need, whether with employment opportunities, or practical work experience during your transition from the military to civvy street, if we can, we will. Because I understand the journey you are on from serving your country to adapting to working on civvy street first hand.”
