Staff training

Please note that we are closed to all Vale clients for staff and trustee training o Friday June 30th. This will allow us to prepare for a PQASSO assessment due at the end of Summer and will hopefully allow us to gain the sought after charter mark.

Six month reviews

All our service users should have received their 6 month reviews.

We would like to thank all those who responded to the feedback survey. They made interesting reading and it was noted that many of you were concerned about the parking. We are doing our best to address this matter with our neighbours. Another request was for the extension of our services in Llantwit – again something we will look into. We will respond to everyone’s comments shortly. The winner of the voucher was Tom Farrington.

Coats and bags

We have a collection of coats, bags lunchboxes etc. hanging round the chapel. If you have lost anything let us know as it may be here. Anything unclaimed will be sent to Nova to be sold.


The Co-operative store in Llantwit has picked the ValePlus outreach service to get money from its fundraising activities. We would ask you to help by becoming members of the Co-op (£1 fee) and donating your 1% charity donation to us. You also get a 5% saving for yourself. Applications can be done online or we can get you a form. At the moment we have raised £328 which will be used to the benefit of our Llantwit members.

Collecting Pots

We still have a number of pots available if anyone is able to place them in local businesses to raise money for Valeplus. Ask Steve for details.

If anyone has any pots ready for collection please let us know.


We are still collecting old printer cartridges to recycle through Tesco. No Epson though please. We are currently collecting towards a new cooker for the café.
