In 2020, the Jewellery Quarter Development Trust (JQDT) signed the Armed Forces Covenant
By signing the covenant, the JQDT pledges their commitment to offer continued support for Armed Forces personnel and their families.
Demonstrating the JQBID’s commitment in supporting both the Royal British Legion and the Armed Forces, each year, the JQBID run events over the course of November, including raising funds for Birmingham Poppy Day and inviting World War reenactors to engage with the public. In 2020, the JQBID also installed an exhibition in the Jewellery Quarter train station.
The signing of the Armed Forces Covenant also led to the group holding their West Midlands Awards Dinner for 2020 in the Jewellery Quarter with a tour of the area attended by both MOD personnel and local businesses.
