Healthy Blaenavon: a conversation with the community

Are you involved in running an activity for children and young people in Blaenavon? Why not come along to our network meeting next Monday to let others know about you and find out what else is going on?

Over the next few months, we’ll be talking to as many local Blaenavon residents as possible. We’ll do this by organising face-to-face events, visiting local groups and activities, working with local organisations, sharing online surveys, and reaching people wherever they find it easiest to speak with us.

We’ll update residents on our findings as we go with regular updates via our social media and website pages.

If you’d like to get involved take why not pop along to one of our events, fill in our online survey or get in touch with the team.

What is Healthy Blaenavon?

Led by Aneurin Bevan University Health Board through its Integrated Wellbeing Network Programme and actively supported by the Healthy Blaenavon Officer of Blaenavon Town Council , conversations with people living and working in Blaenavon will shape how this movement develops.
