Welcome to The Poppy Factory
For nearly 90 years, The Poppy Factory in Richmond, Surrey, has been making poppies, crosses and wreaths for the Royal Family and the Royal British Legion’s annual Remembrance Day appeal. Since 2007, The Poppy Factory has also been placing wounded, injured or sick ex-military personnel of all ages and from a variety of armed forces backgrounds into jobs beyond the Factory and all around the UK. Focusing on boosting recruitment and employment prospects for ex Service personnel, The Poppy Factory has found and matched employers with clients, and in many cases, part-funded their clients’ first year’s salary, to allow for training into their new role. Join us in our drive to get wounded, sick and injured ex-armed forces men and women back to work. Having valiantly served their country, we think they deserve it.
Looking For Work?
We know it can be difficult when looking for work but if you are ex Forces with an injury, illness or medical condition and are seeking help in finding a job, we may be the right people to help you. The Poppy Factory helps find work for wounded, injured and sick ex-Service personnel with employers in their own community.
We are always seeking ways to develop relationships to help secure paid jobs for ex service personnel. Therefore if you would like to help us in any way, whether that is through giving a charitable donation or by providing recruitment opportunites then please contact us.
