Our mission is to preserve and enhance the unique character of Aberdare while driving positive change and growth & to help drive more footfall to the town centre. Through various initiatives, events, and partnerships, we aim to foster a strong sense of community, boost local businesses, and create a welcoming environment for all who call Aberdare home and those who visit this remarkable town.
