Trusts, foundations and charity supporters

Our military charity, trust and foundation partners provide vital funds that help us get more veterans with mental and physical health conditions back into work.


Who supports our work

We are delighted to have grown our partnerships with a number of military charities, trusts and foundations and livery companies, matching their interests to our employment service. Together we have had a huge impact on our veterans’ lives. We are extremely grateful to all our supporters, some examples of which are included below.


How we can work together

Your organisation can provide funds for specific aspects of our Employment Service, on a one-off or multi-year basis, which helps us to ensure the longevity of our work.

You can fund work that reflects your own location, origins, interests and priorities. We are happy to develop bespoke applications to suit your aims. We will always keep you up to date with our work and how your support is making a difference to the lives of veterans across England and Wales.


Support veterans like Donna

Army veteran Donna Purnell, 36, from Ammanford, experienced mental health challenges and reached breaking point years after leaving service. With joint support from Veterans NHS WalesChange Step and The Poppy Factory, she has been able to recover and flourish in a new job offering emotional support to families in the region.

"When I felt it was time to look for a job, I was introduced to Natalie at The Poppy Factory. I had no idea what to put on my CV, I hadn’t had an interview for such a long time, and I’d been unemployed for eight months. Natalie sorted me out and got me on RBLI’s Lifeworks course, and things quickly snowballed. I love my job. It’s such a refreshing change to want to come to work and my boss is really supportive."
