Swansea Public Services Board

Swansea Public Services Board is a partnership of public service agencies who work together to improve local services. The four statutory members of the Board are Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board, Natural Resources Wales, the Fire and Rescue Service and the Council. The Board also involves other organisations that have an interest in the wellbeing of the area for example the police and the universities. Support is provided by the City and County of Swansea.

Every local council area in Wales is legally required to have a Public Services Board.  This requirement is set out in the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.

The purpose of the Board is to improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of the City and County of Swansea.

The Board wants to see Swansea develop as a city of opportunity, a city that cares, a city of innovation and a city to be proud of.

In other words - to make a visible difference for Swansea citizens.

While the focus is local, the Board will also contribute to the national well-being goals that have been set out by the Welsh Government. These are:

·       A prosperous Wales

·       A resilient Wales

·       A healthier Wales

·       A more equal Wales

·       A Wales of cohesive communities

·       A Wales of vibrant culture and thriving Welsh language

·       A globally responsible Wales

To demonstrate that the Boards activities are contributing to the national well-being goals the Board will set up a 'Wellbeing Panel'.  The Panel, made up of local and /or national experts will assess the draft Well-being Plan against the requirements of the Act.  The assessment will then be reviewed by scrutiny.
