What are we doing in Carmarthenshire?

One of the first tasks for the Public Services Board (PSB) was to undertake a Well-being Assessment in Carmarthenshire. We have done this in partnership with Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire to ensure a consistent approach across the Hywel Dda area footprint.

The Carmarthenshire Well-Being Assessment 2017 outlines what well-being looks like in the County and what Carmarthenshire’s residents and communities want well-being to look like in the future.  The assessment explores key issues which positively and/or negatively impact well-being and provides a basic overview and understanding of the nature and levels of well-being in Carmarthenshire.  This initial assessment provides a foundation upon which we can build a greater understanding of well-being for our citizens and communities going forward.  We will use the findings from the assessment and the consultation report on the assessment alongside other key information to develop a Well-being Plan for Carmarthenshire by May 2018.  This Plan will outline how we will work in partnership to address some of the key issues affecting the well-being of the citizens and communities of the County.

Following consideration of the findings of the Well-being Assessment and engagement events, we have developed our Draft Carmarthenshire Well-being Plan.  We would like to hear your views on this Draft Plan which is out for consultation until 3rd January 2018.  Further information is available on our Get Involved page.

As a Public Services Board, we will be taking action to meet the 7 well-being goals which are shown below:
