Welfare


Our Welfare services are split into six categories:

  • Poppy Funds We can provide funds in a temporary crisis, such as homelessness, or assist with loans for property repairs and starting up a small business.

  • Poppy Advice We can offer advice on War Pensions, Compensation Claims and also give Careers advice for those leaving the Forces.

  • Poppy Homes A major part of our welfare work is to provide short and long-term care for ex-Service people and their dependants in our seven Poppy Homes around the country.

  • Poppy Breaks We have four Poppy Break Centres for those recovering from an illness or bereavement, located in some of the country's most popular, traditional seaside resorts.

  • Poppy Travel We offer pilgrimages and tours to war cemeteries, memorials and battlefields worldwide, with each designed as a relaxing and informative holiday.

  • Poppy People Volunteers are vital to our organisation - you can join as a Poppy Collector, or as a Caseworker, providing emotional support and practical assistance in the local community.  We are also looking for more Hospital and Housebound Visitors.

  • Poppy Calls Poppy Calls provides a free dedicated handy person service to those unable to carry out small repairs and minor alterations in their homes.

If you require or know of any person who can benefit from our assistance, please contact us.
