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.

Getting veterans with health conditions back to work

The Poppy Factory provides a free, personalised employment service across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, supporting all unemployed veterans with physical and mental health conditions back into civilian work.

We know that meaningful employment changes lives.

Who we help

If you have served for one day or more in the Armed Forces or Reserves, and you consider yourself to have any kind of physical or mental health condition, we want to support you back into your choice of work.

A physical or mental health condition does not have to be attributed to Service, but to be eligible for support, you must be unemployed and no longer receiving Career Transition Partnership assistance.

Our support includes:

  • Application process guidance such as CVs, application forms and interview preparation.
  • Help in the workplace to identify any required adaptations to support veterans staying in work.
  • Liaison with relevant clinicians to ensure veterans have consistent support.
  • Training and qualifications where they are a requirement for the role.
  • Signposting and referrals to partner organisations with ongoing collaboration.

“Within a week of getting my Class 1 driving licence, The Poppy Factory introduced me to John Raymond Transport (the Nolan Group). I couldn’t have been happier to be offered a job.”
“Picking myself up and asking for help was a massive thing. The support from The Poppy Factory just kept me going. They invested their time in me and I didn’t want to let them down.”
“When I got a job at Jaguar Land Rover I was over the moon. It’s a great opportunity and I’m really enjoying it. I would like to thank The Poppy Factory for all the support they’ve given me.”
