Learning for hope

Valleys Taskforce

The Valleys Taskforce wants to hear the views of people who work and live in the south Wales valleys to help shape the valleys communities for the future.
It would be great if you can engage with the talk valleys programme and help spread the word by sharing the different ways people can get involved to your family, friends, colleagues and relevant stakeholders.
There is a Talk Valleys online survey or views and comments can be sent to the TalkValleys mailbox.
If you follow social media, then follow the Talk Valleys facebook page and use #TalkValleys on Twitter. (wg_communities)
We’ll also be sending out a regular Talk Valleys e-mailer so if you, friends, family or stakeholders want to keep up to date with the progress of the taskforce then please send us the email addresses.
We hope you can help to get as many people engaged to #TalkValleys.
Diolch / thanks
