June 2012 E-bulletin
I hope you enjoy reading the June e-bulletin, which is landing in your in-box a little early.
I’d particularly like to remind you that the deadline for the Impact Plus grant scheme first round is noon on Wednesday 6 June.
In the meantime, I do hope you manage to find time over the queen’s jubilee to have a break and recharge your batteries.

Entitled ‘Co-creating Healthy Change’, we’re bidding to develop a portfolio of projects that will ensure people in Cardiff and the Vale will be able to influence decisions about health and well-being services, and co-create change in health and social care public service delivery.
