Company Information

The Poppy Factory is an independent charity which was founded in 1922 with the object of providing paid employment opportunities for disabled ex-Servicemen and women. A factory was established in Richmond to make poppies and other commemorative items to achieve this purpose. The products are sold under special arrangements to The Royal British Legion.

Whilst the charity continues to provide paid employment through its Factory for disabled ex-Servicemen and women, it also facilitates paid and meaningful employment opportunities for wounded, injured and sick (WIS) ex-Servicemen and women throughout England and Wales, via its community based employability service. We can also provide assistance in Northern Ireland.

This is an excellent opportunity to join The Poppy Factory at an exciting period of expansion in its activities supporting veterans.  We hope you are inspired to join us in our important and exciting work to create a world in which every workplace values disabled veterans.
