Cwm Taf Well-being Assessment
As part of its duty under the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act, the Cwm Taf Public Services Board will develop a Well-being Plan (by May 2018). The Plan will contain a set of Well-being Objectives and the steps the Public Services Board will take to meet them.
Successfully achieving the Well-being Objectives will help to improve the cultural, economic, environmental and social well-being of the people who live and work in Cwm Taf now and in the future. You can follow the development of the Well-being Objectives and find out how you can get involved in the conversation here.
In order to understand what well-being currently looks like in Cwm Taf and what is important to our communities, the Public Services Board first carried out an assessment of well-being. This told us about
Cwm Taf is made up of two local authority areas; Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taf.
There are 295,865 people living in Cwm Taf; 20% of the population lives in Merthyr Tydfil and 80% lives in Rhondda Cynon Taf.
More people live here than live in other places of the same size in Wales, but our population is not expected to rise as much as other areas in the next twenty years.
By 2039 our population is predicted to rise to 304,543.
