Have you been Inspired?
Active Plus is a team of injured veterans running a FREE course in Portscatho at Gerrans Memorial Hall on Thursday afternoon for six weeks. The course aimed at people over the age of 50 years has a safety theme incorporating;-
First Aid, Fire Safety, Personal Safety & Neuro-Linguistic Programming alongside team building exercises to build confidence and encourage strength in the community.
Many older people become lonely through unemployment, bereavement, illness, disability, family breakdowns or are carers. The lack of contact with others can lead to depression, anxieties and other medical issues and vulnerabilities. The Injured veterans are from a variety of backgrounds including military intelligence, Special Forces and regular service roles similarly they understand the isolation issues that older people can go through.
‘I hadn’t realised how isolated I was feeling, Active Plus has given me value again & made me feel human.’
‘I had forgotten how to laugh.’
