Vale of Glamorgan Public Services Board Terms of Reference




The PSB is comprised of the following organisations:


Well-being of Future Generations Act:

PSBs were established in each local authority area in Wales through the Well-being of Future Generations Act 2015. In line with the Act, each PSB is required to assess the state of well-being across the area as a whole and within communities to inform a Well-being Plan. 


Our Well-being Assessment:

The Well-being Assessment was published in April 2017, and has brought together a wealth of information about life in the Vale of Glamorgan. The Assessment, its different aspects, including local area profiles and an engagement report are available on our Increasing Evidence  webpages.  


Our Well-being Plan:

The Well-being Assessment has directly informed the development of the Vale of Glamorgan draft Well-being Plan. 

The draft Well-being Plan is a five year plan that provides a framework for the PSBs core collaborative activities over the 2018-2023 period. The draft Plan details four Well-being Objectives and a number of steps through which the Board will work to improve well-being in the Vale. 


The draft Well-being Plan must be published by May 2018. Following an extensive public consultation and engagement period, the PSB is now ensuring that all partners can work together to deliver its Plan. Currently the draft Plan is being taken through partners individual approval mechanisms, prior to final sign-off by the PSB at its meeting on 18th April. 


The PSB would like to thank all who have been involved in the development of the Well-being Plan so far, either though responding to our Let's Talk Survey, attending a workshop or through providing formal feedback.       


Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan Area Plan


Alongside the development of the Well-being Plan, the PSB has worked with Cardiff and Vale Regional Partnership Board to develop its Area Plan. The Area Plan sets out the key needs identified by the Population Needs Assessment, along with the priority areas for action in response to the RPB's findings.
