Armed Forces Week and Reserves Day

Armed forces day

Armed Forces Week 2020

Armed Forces Week is a national celebration of the Armed Forces, with many employers traditionally hosting activities and events to highlight their support. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, face-to-face engagement is not possible but there are still ways employers can celebration and show their appreciation, such as running virtual events or social media campaigns.

Organised by the Ministry of Defence (MOD), Armed Forces Week 2020 takes place from Monday 22 June to Sunday 28 June 2020. 

As part of the celebrations, there are also two full day events: 

  • Reserves Day on 24 June 
  • Armed Forces Day on 27 June.

Please keep an eye out on our Twitter feed for updates and new resources throughout the week.
