Plus was formed in 1941 following the publication of a report entitled "Disinherited Youth" which spotlighted the lack of recreational facilities for young adults in the 18 to 29 age group.

Clubs were set up with the aim of getting young people together to organise a wide range of activities within a friendly, social atmosphere.

The Plus Group is set up with the ideal that as an organisation it will benefit young people by giving them the opportunity to choose and run their own entertainment.

Simply it's a group of young people within their own age range, who meet in the venue of their choice, and elect a Committee to plan, organise, and run their own activities and entertainment.

Plus understands that for many people, taking the initial step of joining a group of people you have never met before can seem a little daunting. That is why each Plus Group organises regular Club Nights, to welcome and introduce new members to the Club in relaxed surroundings. Plus is a friendly organisation! Do come to our regular Club Nights as often as possible after you join, and you will soon find yourself easily making new friends.


Come to one of our Club Nights and meet lots of friendly, sociable people! Join as a Plus Group Member, attend as many national and regional scale events as you can and meet lots of friendly, sociable people!


Whether you are from the U.K. or abroad, it can be difficult to make the most of a new area on your own. Join one of our many local Groups and Plus will quickly introduce you to a new circle of friends with whom to enjoy the very best of your new area.


Plus is not a dating agency. We won't match you up with other members or arrange blind dates, Instead, Plus organises a wide range of activities, with the emphasis on fun, friendship and shared interests. This is a far more spontaneous, relaxed way of meeting people. Everyone attends the events and activities they enjoy the most. There are so many events to choose from, you can easily meet and join up with people who also like the things that you like doing!.
