  • “Parent/Carer feedback: Brilliant group! My son loves playing with all the toys. Such lovely polite workers. My life is so busy I never stop but these groups give me time and opportunity to play.” 
  • “Parent/Carer Feedback: We love the Wednesday sessions. We would be stuck in the house alone in this terrible weather. It is great that it is free with the cost of living at the moment.” 
  • “Parent/Carer Feedback: I don’t know what I would do without Torfaen Play. The free provisions help my children and myself. My children access provisions all year round.”
