Public Services Board

Local Well-being Plan

The Welsh Government passed a new law in 2015 called the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act.  The Act requires a Public Services Board to be set up in each local authority area in Wales. 

The Neath Port Talbot Public Services Board was established in May 2016 to bring together local organisations and strengthen the way they work together to improve the well-being of the people who live in our county borough.

The Neath Port Talbot Public Services Board is a partnership of local public and voluntary organisations from across the area, including:

 Statutory partners:

  • Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council
  • Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board
  • Mid and West Wales Fire
  • National Resources Wales

Invited participants:

NPT Council for Voluntary Service Higher Education Funding Council for Wales
South Wales Police  University of Wales Trinity St David
Tai Tarian Welsh Government
National Probation Service   Public Health Wales
Wales Community Rehabilitation Company Community Councils & Town Councils
Job Centre Plus Police & Crime Commissioner
NPT Group of Colleges  

In line with the Act, the Board assessed the social, economic, environmental and cultural state of well-being across the area.  To understand how well-being could be affected, we collected a large amount of information about the strengths of people and communities and described the challenges and opportunities Neath Port Talbot faces now and in the future.  This information was used in the Well-being Assessment, which was published in May 2017.

During the assessment you told us:

‘Well-being is: “Living your life with health and happiness”

The Board wants to create a Neath Port Talbot where people will have the best chance to get on in life.  There many things we can be proud of in Neath Port Talbot, but they recognise there are big challenges too. The Board has explored where they can make the biggest difference and have consulted local people and have now settled on six priorities that they will work on over the next couple of years. The local Well-being Plan explains what these priorities are, how work will start on these priorities and how local people and organisations can get involved with this work.

The Well-being Plan also sets out the Board’s long term vision for the area.
