Who we are, what we do, and why

The Poppy Factory is the country’s leading employment charity for veterans with health conditions or impairments.

We work with businesses across the country to provide bespoke opportunities and ongoing employment support for hundreds of disabled veterans of all ages and from all Services, helping to restore their financial independence through sustainable and rewarding work.

Our factory in Richmond also employs around 30 disabled veterans to produce the poppies and wreaths for the Royal Family and The Royal British Legion’s annual Poppy Appeal – something we have been doing since we were founded in 1922.
