Active Plus

Resident, Stewart Gavin, from Vane Hill ARBD Home completes programme from Active Plus


Active plus is a Community Interest Company, they established in 2011 and provide programmes for participants whom are from vulnerable or potentially vulnerable groups. The programmes are run by ex military veterans, some of which have physical injuries, PTSD, have been unemployed for a long time and/or making the transition from the forces back to civilian life; all fantastic role models sharing their own personal journeys, skills and expertise to support and build confidence, motivation and self-belief for the participants.

Stewart Gavin enrolled on an Active Plus Works programme; it builds the participants confidence and motivation, whilst developing their communication skills, team work and coping with stress.

Stewart said, “He taught us how to turn things around in our favour in interviews and to control situations.”

The end of programme certificates were awarded by Adrian Saunders MP for Torbay.

Since completing the programme, Stewart is going forward in City & Guilds Health & Social Care and a Pearsons Hospitality & Catering Principles Level 2 at Learn Direct. And most importantly, Stewart has got a volunteer job for TQ together charity shop for local residents; Sorting out clothes, cooking and teaching IT to local residents of Ellecombe, Torquay!

Congratulations and Well Done Stewart!
