"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."
Our employment support has helped secure more than 250 jobs for veterans with mental and physical health conditions since the first UK lockdown.
