The Salvation Army’s Employment Plus service works to support people back into work – we recognise how important having a job is to general well-being and mental health.

The Poppy Factory also has a civilian employment focus.  Established in 1922 to help find work for wounded, injured and sick veterans, over recent years, the charity has diversified.  It no longer employs large numbers of veterans to make remembrance poppies, though a small team still make the royal and commemorative wreaths used on Remembrance Sunday.  The charity now supports wounded veterans across England and Wales back into work and most recently offers similar support to veterans’ families.
