About The Kaleidoscope Plus Group

The Kaleidoscope Plus Group are a health and wellbeing charity that works with people of all ages, with a particular focus on mental health. Their mission is to promote and support positive health and wellbeing, with the ultimate aim of providing services on a national level.

Recovery, inclusion and awareness are key principles in everything they do, with service users at the heart of this vision. Employees are encouraged to undertake voluntary work and the organisation has a knitting group that knits clothing for premature babies at a local hospital, as well as making regular donations to a food bank.

Volunteers have also undertaken mental health first aid training and applied suicide intervention skills training, to recognise those who might be feeling suicidal and equip them with the knowledge to keep them safe. Some 27 interventions have been completed within just eight months of the training.
