Eden Camp Modern History Museum Honoured with Silver Status in Ministry of Defence’s Employer Recognition Scheme

Eden Camp Modern History Museum is proud to announce that it has been awarded the
prestigious ‘Silver’ status by the Reserve Forces and Cadets Association for Yorkshire and
the Humber (RFCA YH) as part of the Ministry of Defence’s Employer Recognition Scheme
(ERS). This esteemed award acknowledges the museum’s outstanding commitment to
supporting the Armed Forces community through fair treatment of veterans, reservists,
families of serving officers, and cadet forces adult volunteers.

The ERS Silver Award is a testament to Eden Camp’s dedication to fostering a supportive
workplace environment for military personnel, both past and present. The museum’s
initiatives and practices have been recognized for their alignment with the objectives of the
ERS, ensuring that military employees are given ample development opportunities and
support in their civilian careers.

Howard Johnson and Paula Peace, Directors and owners of Eden Camp Modern History
Museum, commented, “We are incredibly honoured to receive the Silver Award from the
ERS. At Eden Camp, we value the unique skills and experiences that veterans, reservists, and
military families bring to our team. Their dedication, resilience, and diverse perspectives are
invaluable assets to our organization. This award underscores our commitment to creating
an inclusive and supportive environment for all members of the Armed Forces community.”
To qualify for the ERS Silver Award, organizations must be signatories of the Armed Forces
Covenant (AFC), pledging their support to the military community. This national recognition
celebrates employers who go above and beyond in their efforts to provide equal and fair
opportunities for military personnel and their families. The Silver ERS Award winners will be
celebrated at a regional awards event in York on September 12, 2024.

Colonel Jason Wright, Chief Executive of RFCA YH, stated, “Congratulations to this year’s
employers who have achieved recognition for their exemplary efforts supporting the Armed
Forces Community. Veterans, reservists, and adult volunteers bring a wealth of transferable
skills and knowledge from their military experience, making them invaluable contributors in
a workplace environment or organizational team. We are grateful for the regional
employers committed to ensuring equal and fair opportunities for these individuals and their
families. We hope this year’s recipients further their development of Armed Forces-friendly
practices and policies and continue their ERS journey to reach the highest recognition of
gold status.”

Eden Camp Modern History Museum joins an elite group of nineteen organizations from
Yorkshire and the Humber awarded Silver status this year. The museum’s recognition
highlights its commitment to honouring and supporting those who serve or have served in
the Armed Forces, ensuring their contributions are valued and their needs are met.
