Residents help shape Swansea's well-being strategy

FROM a great start in life to building stronger communities, residents have been helping shape the future of our city.

Well-being is something everyone wants for their families as well as themselves and the city's newly-adopted Local Well-being Plan sets out how Swansea's service providers can work together for a better future.

The plan sets out a blueprint for how public services in Swansea like the health service, the Council, Welsh Government, Natural Resources Wales and the city's universities will work together so that families and communities can create opportunities and make the most of them.  

Rob Stewart, chair of the Swansea Public Services Board which oversees joint-working between public organisations in Swansea, said: "Well-being is about working together to make Swansea a place which is prosperous, where our natural environment is appreciated and maintained and where every person can have the best start in life, get a good job, live well, age well and have every opportunity to be healthy, happy, safe and the best they can be.

"These are the building blocks of what keeps us and our children safe and thriving."

Tracy Myhill, Swansea Bay University Health Board Chief Executive, said: "The health and well-being of our residents throughout their lives is important to us. We're here to help and support everyone in looking after themselves, being healthy and active, so they can lead a happy and prosperous life.

"Working closely with our colleagues in other public services means jointly, we are able to provide more help and support. But this joint work isn't just about public services, it's about everyone, including individuals and local communities getting involved. Thank you to everyone who took part in the consultation. We are looking forward to us all working together to bring this plan to life for the benefit of everyone."

Cllr Stewart added:  "We're really pleased that so many people got involved in the consultation process. It's really made a difference.

"We asked citizens, service users, experts, staff, managers, children and leaders for their advice and support to help put the plan together. Their responses strengthened the plan and helped ensure it will be fit for the future."
