Social Care and Housing is a combined service which comprises the service areas of social services and housing.

The service includes children’s and adults’ social services, the strategic housing function of the Council, since Council housing stock was transferred to Bron Afon Housing Association.

Social Care and Housing Services has three main aims and objectives:

  • That disadvantaged people in Torfaen will receive care and support of the highest quality, provided equitably, with priority afforded to those in greatest need.
  • That Children and vulnerable adults, living in Torfaen, are protected from harm and risks to their well-being are effectively safeguarded.
  • To ensure that homelessness is prevented and everyone living in Torfaen has access to a decent home, whether renting or buying, at a price they can afford and in a community in which they wish to live.

We will aim to treat EVERYONE with dignity, whilst exploring and increasing choice, protecting people, sharing and managing risks and promoting independence.

We will continue our transformation of services aimed at safeguarding and improving the quality of life for local people.
