Neath Port Talbot Health Social Care and Well-Being Strategy

“Making a Real Difference”

We have many things to be proud of in Neath Port Talbot. We have natural assets that compare with the best – our Afan Forest hosts one of the top ten mountain-biking destinations in the world, and our parks are pleasant and attractive destinations for both local people and visitors from elsewhere.

We also have a strong record in delivering excellent public services which are valued by local people and we value the strong partnerships we have with communities, with voluntary organisations, private and statutory sectors which are vital in ensuring we are continuously working to improve the quality of life for local people.

Yet, despite all of the strengths we have, the health of local people is, generally, poorer than the rest of Wales.

This is the third health social care and wellbeing strategy for Neath Port Talbot which has been developed through the combined efforts of Neath Port Talbot Council, Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board, the Council for Voluntary Services and the Local Public Health Team. It reaffirms our joint commitment to improving health for everyone whilst also reducing the gap between the most healthy and the least healthy and improving access for those who need treatment and support.

Enquiries about or comments on the Strategy are most welcome. Please contact the Change Management & Innovation Unit, Civic Centre, Port Talbot SA13 1PJ. Tel: 01639 763242, e-mail:
