How Aspris helps veterans, reservists and families
Aspris has joined the Armed Forces Covenant to pledge support to those who serve, or have served, and the families of those working for the armed forces.
Having received the the bronze Employer Recognition Scheme award, we are delighted to have now received silver status, acknowledging that Aspris is a forces friendly employer.
This is a voluntary pledge, which involves Aspris providing work opportunities for those who may need to relocate throughout their career due to their partner’s military stationing, along with providing support to veterans and reservists, who may need additional support from their employer.
Aspris wants to ensure that members of the armed forces community are treated respectfully, offering a supportive work environment.
As part of the covenant, Aspris guarantees interviews for service personnel as they transition into civilian life and has a forum called Aspris Allies, in which colleagues can connect, share resources and celebrate our colleagues who are serving, have served, or have family in the armed forces.
Kylie Cheston, Deputy HR Director at Aspris, works closely on this initiative for Aspris, and said:
“Setting up the Aspris Allies community is something close to my heart as a military wife and cadet forces volunteer.
“I’m really proud that Aspris is supporting the wider military community and their families with their careers and I’m looking forward to talking with colleagues who are part of this group.”
We continue to increase the support we offer as we work towards the gold award, and welcome those in the armed forces community to get in touch if they would like to work with us.

In recognition of the differing specialisms operating across Aspris Children's Services, we are delighted to now introduce two operational divisions in the UK – Aspris Education and Aspris Care, which will operate under the overall Aspris Children's Services banner.
Children and young people across our schools, colleges and homes have been getting creative recently after a competition was launched to inspire the final designs of the new behaviour icons for Aspris.
