Active Plus

Active Plus is an award winning Community Interest Company that utilises the skills of wounded, injured and sick (WIS) military veterans to provide a range of personal development, education and wellbeing programmes for people in need. They seek to achieve the dual benefits of rehabilitation and personal development for their employees and volunteers whilst also improving health & wellbeing within local communities.

WIS veterans have a wide range of knowledge, skills and attributes that they can use to help others and, in doing so, enhance their own rehabilitation. They are very effective role models and can achieve a high impact through their communication, team-working and instructional skills. Their programmes include a range of inputs depending on client needs, such as planning, problem solving, communication, teamwork, employability skills, goal setting and personal action planning.

  • Employment status: Unemployed or economically inactive
