New adventure for Fife-based firm

February 17, 2017

Fife-based adventure holiday company Access to Adventure has signed the UK Armed Forces Covenant. 

In doing so the firm made a commitment to support the country’s servicemen and women wherever and however it can and to ensure no member of the Armed Forces should suffer any disadvantage as a result of their service.

The signing – by Access to Adventure Managing Director and owner Steve Callaghan – took place at the company’s HQ at Rosyth Business Centre with the document co-signed on behalf of the Ministry of Defence (MoD) by Commander Richard Moss RN, Chief of Staff to the Naval Regional Commander for Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Mr Callaghan was also presented with an Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Bronze certificate for the firm which delivers a range of exciting and accessible outdoor experiences across Scotland.

ERS encourages employers to support defence and inspire others to do the same. The prestigious Bronze, Silver and Gold awards are for employer organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to defence and the Armed Forces community, and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant.

The event was organised by Highland Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association and attended by the organisation’s Regional Employer Engagement Director Ron Macgregor.
