What is a Community Explorer?

Community Explorers are people who feedback what the community are saying about the issues that matter to them. We will provide opportunities for this feedback to be shared with relevant partners and help to scope out possible solutions to local problems. We are currently offering this to people who live in Blaenavon, Croesyceiliog or Llanyrafon. If you are interested in getting involved please email Torfaen.WellbeingFriends.ABB@wales.nhs.uk
