The wonder of Wonderwool Wales 2020

Transport for Wales has pledged to support the Armed Forces Community by signing a commitment to honour the Armed Forces Covenant. Te agreement acknowledges and understands that those who serve and who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society when they serve with their lives. As part of the pledge, TfW will ensure that no member of the Armed Forces will face any disadvantage during recruitment and in some circumstances special treatment may be appropriate, especially for the injured or bereaved. TfW are keen to promote that they are

a fully inclusive organisation and their commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant is simply another way of demonstrating this. James Price, Transport for Wales CEO said: “Transport for Wales is proud to be supporting the Armed Forces Community and we have signed and committed to the Armed Forces Covenant. “We are an open and transparent organisation, delivering a £5 billion investment programme to transform transport in Wales. We are growing and recruiting, and we welcome applicants from the armed forces who will bring a wealth of vocational skills and experience.”
