Some of you out there may already have heard on the grapevine that our application to the Armed Forces Community Covenant for the continuation of Change Step in Wales was unsuccessful.

Feedback for our bid was positive, but I guess they had a lot of requests to juggle.  The decision will inevitably mean some significant changes to the way in which Change Step is delivered, but we are determined to carry on one way or another.

We are urgently talking to partners and stakeholders to see what can be done, and I am already overwhelmed with the goodwill and determination of everyone to pull together.

Rest assured, we will do whatever we can to secure a future for Change Step.  Stay tuned.

Director, Change Step
