What we do

The Poppy Factory supports veterans with health conditions on their journey into employment, helping them overcome any barriers.

Four out of five of the veterans we work with report a mental health condition. Whatever their situation, and whatever they are going through, our employment team is on hand to offer one-to-one support.

Our employment support is available to individuals who have served for one day or more in the Armed Forces or Reserves, and consider themselves to have any kind of physical or mental health condition.

Christmas has been a time of celebration at The Poppy Factory for 100 years – so please join us in making the festive season a December to remember!

We’re excited to offer a series of special events in our visitor centre this year, including a Christmas wreath-making masterclass with expert Lilac & Bloom florist, Elena, on Thursday 8 December, and a Christmas cupcake workshop with our in-house 7 Marvels star baker, Cristina, on Monday 12 December.
