Employment support is now available through the Sound primary care network, provided by an employability consultant from The Poppy Factory. If you are unemployed, have served in the armed forces for one day or more, and have a physical or mental health condition, you can register for this support.
The Poppy Factory’s mission is to support veterans with health conditions on their journey into employment and to continue supporting them whatever challenges they may face. The service is veteran-centred and helps people of all ages, including many over 50. The men and women they support move into a diverse range of jobs across dozens of different sectors, from logistics and construction to the charity sector and health care.
The Poppy Factory has been supporting wounded, injured and sick veterans for nearly 100 years and continue to stand by them on their journey into employment and beyond.
