Welcome to The Poppy Factory
For over 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 Poppy Appeal. In recent years, The Poppy Factory has transformed itself into a thoroughly modern charity. As well as providing work for disabled veterans at its HQ in Richmond, The Poppy Factory uses its unique expertise to help its clients find work with many commercial organisations all over the UK. The Poppy Factory has a vision that “no disabled veteran who wants to work should be out of work” and aims to become the recruitment provider of choice for its ex-Forces clients and for employers alike. Join us in our drive to get disabled veterans into meaningful, rewarding and sustainable employment. 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.
