Armed Forces Network Group

Leonardo's Armed Forces network group connects and supports our veterans, reservists and military family colleagues and communities. Additionally, it assists new employees as they transition from military to civilian life. For the wider Leonardo UK business, the group helps enhance our collective sense of pride in being part of UK and allied defence, through sharing stories from our veterans, reservists and military families.

During 2023, Leonardo’s Armed Forces network group is marking the following events:

  • Armed Forces Week (19-24 June) including Reserves Day (22 June) and Armed Forces Day (24 June)
  • National Inclusion Week (25 September - 1 October)
  • Armistice Day (11 November)

Partnerships & Accreditations

Leonardo is honoured to sponsor the 'Finding It Tough?' campaign of the Royal Air Forces (RAF) Association, which offers free training, through three tailored online mental wellbeing courses aimed at supporting non-serving members of the RAF community – veterans, families, and the supporting community.

Leonardo is committed to honouring our Armed Forces Covenant and supporting the Armed Forces Community. Our support is long-standing and dates back to before the consolidation of our business.

Leonardo was awarded the UK MoD’s Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Award for its work supporting Reservists and the Armed Forces. The award recognises companies for initiatives such as employing veterans, supporting individuals transitioning out of the armed forces into a new career and providing flexibility for Reservists.

Since 2010, Leonardo has partnered with and supported the UK’s Armed Forces Para-Snowsport Team (AFPST), which plays a powerful role in the recovery, transformation and personal freedom of wounded, injured and sick military personnel and veterans.
