Every penny you raise for The Poppy Factory goes towards supporting veterans with mental and physical health conditions find meaningful jobs in their communities.
Right now, there are many veterans with significant health barriers who are struggling to find employment after leaving the Armed Forces. With your support we can help them change their lives and find a new sense of purpose. You can:
- Contribute to our life changing 100 lives campaign
- If you're a business looking to support us, you can pledge to raise funds and someone from our team will be in touch with you.
Partnering with The Poppy Factory will bring lasting benefits to your company. Be part of a bespoke strategic partnership and boost employee engagement.
There are opportunities for your teams to volunteer here at the factory making poppies, as well as giving your expertise to veterans looking for work across the UK.
By organising your own fundraising activity or taking part in an event, you’ll be helping us raise funds for our veteran employment service, Getting You Back To Work, and awareness for The Poppy Factory. Our friendly fundraising team have got lots of ideas to help you get started, including:
- Sign up to run a half marathon, take on a sky dive or hike up a mountain
- Get crafty in the kitchen and hold a bake sale
- Host a fundraising event for Team Poppy Factory
Our volunteers are at the heart of our charity. With our volunteers’ time and energy, we are better placed to provide employment support to veterans with health conditions getting back into work.
Whether you have time to volunteer each week or help at one-off events, The Poppy Factory offers a range of volunteering opportunities. From raising awareness of the charity at community events or welcoming guests on factory tours, to attending corporate team-building poppy-making days at our factory, we have something for you.
