Coronavirus update: 

As the nation continues to be affected by and adapt to the developing coronavirus situation, we would like to reassure veterans that the employability service provided by The Poppy Factory will continue to operate remotely.  This includes support for both those who are looking for work and those who we have recently supported into employment. Click here to find out more

We are The Poppy Factory. We have been supporting veterans with physical and mental health conditions into employment across the UK for 98 years.

Our veterans’ stories

No two people’s experiences, skills or situations are ever the same. Complex health issues, such as PTSD or a physical injury developed during or after Service, can make it incredibly tough for veterans to find and sustain civilian work. That’s why the support we provide is tailored to suit each person.
