Your Healthy Blaenavon Officer

I’m Rebecca Smith, your Healthy Blaenavon Officer.  After 20 years of working in Museums and Heritage, creating learning and wellbeing projects I came to work for Blaenavon Town Council in 2019.  It’s my job to support the residents in Blaenavon to live a “Healthy” life. As part of the Healthy Blaenavon project I can help you connect with agencies for mental health, tenancy support and employment or local activities to support your health and wellbeing.

Over the past two years we have created many new projects and activities for you to join, in town and taken many residents on trips to places like London, Cardiff and Swansea. I work with the Hwb youth service, schools, families, individuals, and community groups.

So far, the Healthy Blaenavon Project has supported more than 200 individuals to begin their journey to becoming healthier and happier.

If you would like some help or to take part in one of our Healthy Blaenavon projects email Rebecca or find us on Facebook on the links below.
