The Poppy Factory supports veterans with health conditions on their journey into employment, helping them overcome any barriers.
Four out of five of the veterans we work with report a mental health condition. Whatever their situation, and whatever they are going through, our employment team is on hand to offer one-to-one support.
Our service is veteran-centred and helps ex-Forces job seekers of all ages. The people we support move into a diverse range of jobs across many different sectors, from logistics and construction to the charity sector and health care.
The Poppy Factory has been supporting veterans with health conditions for nearly 100 years. We continue to stand by them on their journey into employment and beyond.

Veterans are at the heart of our service. We empower them to plan their own future, supporting them into employment that reflects their aspirations, skills and circumstances.
Specialist support and meaningful employment can be truly life-changing, significantly improving veterans’ confidence, financial security and health and wellbeing.
Our expertise is in helping the most vulnerable in the ex-Forces community. Many come to us years after leaving the Armed Forces. They may be struggling to adapt to the civilian world and experience complex barriers to work. Nearly four in five of the veterans we support report a mental health condition and almost half have multiple health conditions.
