The Coventry Active Plus Forum promotes NON-POLITICAL communication
within the Coventry Active Plus community.
Coventry Active Plus is part
of the National Federation of 18 Plus Groups, Britain's only voluntary
nationwide Social & Activities Organisation for young adults
aged 18 to 35. Click here to Subscribe:
The Plus Forum was launched in February 1999 with the aim of
connecting people in 18 Plus across the country, to encourage and improve
communication throughout the National Federation of Plus Groups. It provides a
convenient means for members to keep in-touch, promote events, share
information and debate new ways of improving their organisation.

throughout the UK and improve communications between Members, Groups, Areas and
National tiers. Above all there is a need for change within 18 Plus and there
seemed to be many members who had good ideas and useful experience who were

The Plus Forum Web
Site is set up to augment the main 18 Plus Forum and serve as a central point
of reference for all those subscribed. It also serves to promote other Plus
The 18 Plus E-mail Discussion List has grown constantly since its
formation and represents one of our organisations biggest success stories.
