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.

The Poppy Factory’s employment consultants are based regionally throughout England and Wales, offering regular one-to-one contact with veterans.
They help with CV writing, job search, support with training, exploring new opportunities, interview preparation, overcoming barriers and in-work support.
Veterans are at the heart of our service. We empower them to plan their own future, supporting them into employment that reflects their aspirations, skills and circumstances.
Specialist support and meaningful employment can be truly life-changing.
