Deirdre Mills, CEO of The Poppy Factory, has just shared the latest update below:
At The Poppy Factory our mission is to support veterans with health conditions into employment and to continue supporting them whatever challenges they may face.
In line with the new measures announced by government however, our factory in Richmond has now closed. Arrangements are being made to support our production team whilst they are at home and our office-based staff are all now working remotely. Please be reassured that our national employability service will continue to operate, providing support for veterans looking for work and for those recently supported into employment. Our service will be provided by telephone and by email, with video calls wherever possible.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely, follow the latest information and advice from the NHS and provide updates as the situation evolves.
