Communities and Digital

The Communities and Digital Directorate was created to champion and strengthen the vital role that our communities play in improving wellbeing and the vibrancy of their local place. We work with our partners across Torfaen to help the growing community groups, organisations and volunteers who want to support their neighbours. And we work across Council departments to make sure that our services are organised around the community and are informed by the best data insight and business intelligence.

The Strategic Director for Communities and Digital is Dave Leech
