Supporting veterans with health conditions into work

Our employment support includes:

  • Advice on job opportunities to match each veteran’s own skills and goals.
  • Support with CVs, job application forms and preparing for interviews.
  • Support with training and qualifications when they are needed.
  • Regular contact with veterans after moving into employment.
  • Working with veterans and their employers to overcome barriers and find solutions.
  • Regular joint working with partner organisations to ensure veterans have consistent support.

Criteria for support

  • Have you served for one day or more in the Armed Forces or Reserves?
  • Do you consider yourself to have a mental or physical health condition? This does not need to be linked to your time in service.
  • Are you unemployed and thinking about moving back into work? We may also be able to help if you are being made redundant, are absent through long-term sickness, or your role negatively impacts your health.

"I met Jane from The Poppy Factory. Jane started giving me employment support, helping me build up my CV and making it clear what skills I have. She was really helpful, always taking the time to listen carefully and understand."
