How FACE works

FACE is a free programme available to all schools in our Local Authority areas:

  • Torfaen
  • Monmouthshire
  • Newport
  • Blaenau Gwent
  • South Powys

The programme is funded through contractors we work with, they pay money into our Sustainable Communities Fund when they work with us which enables us to deliver projects like this to the communities we serve.

You can view all the contractors we work with who help us make a difference to people and the communities we serve.

Supporting teachers

We recognise how important teachers are and what a fantastic job they do supporting young people. FACE is able to support teachers with our wellbeing initiative, Zest. We can help support the school team with healthy treats, relaxation workshops, exercise classes and more.
