The Poppy Factory

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.

Armed Forces Breakfast clubs


Breakfast Clubs are completely FREE…. And will remain free!

There are no fees or subs; they are not a business or charity; they do not exist to raise funds for any national charity, organisation or business; Breakfast Clubs exist simply to facilitate veterans, and often currently service personnel, meeting face to face, in a relaxed, safe, social environment; that is our primary aim and function above all others, to allow veterans to ‘return to the tribe’.

All any veteran or service person will ever have to pay for, is their own breakfast, and even then, clubs tend to ensure that the cost of breakfast for WWII veterans, and those who are suffering hardship, is taken care of.



Support all veterans with physical, mental or social injury to gain the skills and qaulifications necessary to develop new careers outs the military, re-integrate into society and provide long term security for themselves and their families.
