All our service users should be shortly receiving their 6 month reviews. Copies also go to social workers and case managers. We would welcome feedback as usual.

As part of this review we would also welcome suggestions about the service that ValePlus provides. We would be grateful for new ideas or requests for new projects. Here’s your chance to make a difference.

Write to us or e–mail in the usual way or use the return slip on the review. All those who contribute will be put into a draw for a voucher.

Well Done Adrian

Congratulations to Adrian Abbott who was successful in the recent Citizen of the Year Awards in Llantwit Major. Adrian was nominated by the Llantwit staff for his superb efforts in the Special Olympics in America where he represented Great Britain in the Games and gained a number of medals. Well done – we are all very proud of you.


The recent good weather as meant that we have started working in the garden. We will be holding another Garden Party in the summer following on from last year’s successful event. We would welcome donations on any plants that we can grow in the garden and put on the stall. More details next month. We would also like to know if anyone has any contacts with any musicians who can provide live entertainment on the day.

The next Saturday workshop is planned for May 20th. The

Contact Details

We are currently updating contact details and have included a form with this newsletter. We really need to know if there have been any changes in medication over the last year which may be relevant to us. New mobile phone numbers and e-mail addresses would also be very useful.

WEA Grant

We are very grateful to the Worker’s Educational Association Cymru for their kind sponsorship of our courses. We have invested a great deal of resources into running these courses and it’s great to see our efforts being supported in this away. It has meant that we have been able to buy a huge interactive board for the centre which is very popular.
