The concept behind this project is to build upon hub development and community networks that have been created across Torfaen and to encourage public spaces to offer community partners and groups the opportunity to provide a range of activities, programmes and services.

Key Aims

Access and Inclusion

Increasing opportunities for people to connect. Building awareness and promoting positive attitudes.


A community infrastructure that supports connected community services that have been developed in partnership – with communities, passengers, or partners – to ensure they meet the widest possible needs.

Sustainable Impact

Low carbon solutions but help us to deliver services in an environmentally sustainable way.

Services that are designed to be viable in the longer term, embedded in the communities they serve.

Local Connections

Cohesive and supportive communities.

Connecting with other community hubs to prove integration.

Supporting people within the community.
