The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 establishes a statutory board, known as a Public Services Board (PSB), in each local authority area in Wales. The PSB is a collection of public bodies working together to improve the well-being of our county.
This means that as a group we must improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of our area by working to achieve the 7 Well-being goals. We will assess the state of economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being and publish a well-being plan setting out our local objectives and the steps we will take to meet them. We must follow the sustainable development principle - meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Our four statutory members are:
- Carmarthenshire County Council
- Hywel Dda University Health Board
- Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service
- Natural Resources Wales
Our other partners are:
- Coleg Sir Gâr
- University of Wales Trinity Saint David
- Dyfed Powys Police
- Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner
- Department for Work & Pensions
- Carmarthenshire Association of Voluntary Services
- Welsh Government
- National Probation Service
- Brecon Beacons National Park Authority
All of our meetings and events are available to view on our 'Meetings' page. Each meeting/event has a section where you are welcome to submit any questions you may want us to discuss and consider.
In order to make progress on the objectives set out in our Well-being Plan, we have established a series of Delivery Groups and a Safer Communities Partnership.
- Healthy Environment
- Early Intervention
- Strong Connections
- Prosperous People and Places
- Safer Communities
Why get involved?
We want to include as many people as possible in setting our well-being objectives and achieving the well-being goals. We need everyone to be involved to ensure the work we are doing and the services we deliver meet the needs of all our residents. We will endeavour to actively engage with the whole population of Carmarthenshire to reflect our diverse communities and ensure that we hear from all perspectives. We need you to tell us where we can improve so that you benefit from effective and efficient public services.
