Cwm Taf draft Well-being Plan

Last year, the Public Services Board carried out the Cwm Taf Well-being Assessment. This gave the Board a good understanding of the areas of work it should make its priorities, based on what is important to the people who work and live in Cwm Taf and what they think will be important to future generations. The Assessment also looked at what our communities already have and some of the difficulties we have locally.

The Public Services Board has used the Well-being Assessment to write some draft Well-being Objectives. These outline what public services might do in the next five years to improve well-being in Cwm Taf.  They also look further into the future to what Cwm Taf might be like for our future generations of children, young people, adults and older people.

The Board will work with all its partners, including staff and the public, over the coming months to think about them in more detail and write a Well-being Plan, setting out what it wants to achieve and the steps it will take to do so.

The draft Well-being Objectives are:

  • To promote safe, confident, resilient, and thriving communities, improving the well-being of residents and visitors and building on our community assets;
  • To help people live long and healthy lives and overcome any challenges;
  • To grow a strong local economy with sustainable transport that attracts people to live, work and play in Cwm Taf.
