Dundee Heritage Trust has been presented with the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Bronze Award.
HRFCA Regional Employer Engagement Director Roy McLellan handed over the certificate to Trust Chief Executive Deirdre Robertson (pictured) on 19 June at Discovery Point in Dundee.
The award is in recognition of the support the Trust gives to the Armed Forces.
The Trust had previously signed the Armed Forces Covenant on 25 March, joining the 10,000+ UK organisations to have already shown their support. It is a pledge to recognise the value serving personnel, both regular and reservists, veterans and military families contribute to business and our country.
Naval Regional Commander Scotland & Northern Ireland, Brigadier Andy Muddiman ADC, co-signed the Covenant on behalf of the Ministry of Defence (MOD) and Defence Relationship Management (DRM).
Formed in 1985, Dundee Heritage Trust is a registered charity dedicated to guardianship, preservation and portrayal of Dundee’s heritage in ways that educate, inspire and enlighten current and future generations.
As well as the internationally significant Royal Research Ship Discovery, Dundee Heritage Trust has responsibility for Discovery Point, home of RRS Discovery, and Verdant Works, one of the nation’s most important textile museums. Both sites are accredited museums, 5 star rated attractions with VisitScotland and have won numerous awards.
Roy said: “We congratulate Dundee Heritage Trust on receiving ERS Bronze and thank them for supporting the Armed Forces community. We look forward to working together with them in the future.”
