  • Mission statement

    Over the past few years, The Poppy Factory has been piloting a supported employment scheme and has successfully placed more than 80 veterans of all ages in jobs beyond the Factory, all around the UK. Finding and matching employers with clients, in many cases The Poppy Factory part-funds their client's first year’s salary, to allow for a period of flexibility and enhanced training and development.

    In June 2011, The Poppy Factory announced its plans to help 500 wounded, injured or sick ex-Service men and women into mainstream employment over the next 5 years.

    The Poppy Factory is working towards a vision in which every disabled person who has served in HM Forces is enabled to return to paid and meaningful civilian employment.
