In accordance with the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 the Conwy and Denbighshire Public Services Board is required to publish an assessment of well-being for the area.
The Act is a new law that aims to get public services and communities working together to tackle the challenges Wales faces now and in the future in order to improve the long-term social, environmental, cultural and economic well-being of Wales.
The Well-being Assessment will be used to inform a number of long term plans. It has been used to inform individual Public sector Improvement Plans (Corporate Plans) and it will also be used to inform the development of priorities of the Public Service Board Well-being plan for the area. This plan will be published in April 2018.
This Well-being Assessment seeks to capture the strengths and assets of its people and communities. It also seeks to describe the challenges and opportunities faced both now and in the future. The Well-being Assessment has been informed by data, national and local research and most importantly feedback provided to us from residents, visitors and businesses through the County Conversation during the summer and autumn of 2016 – which was conducted with public sector partners across Conwy and Denbighshire.
Importantly, partners on the Conwy and Denbighshire Public Services Board have worked collaboratively on the Well-being Assessment. We have taken this approach to ensure that the assessment is shaped using the expertise, knowledge and insight of all the Public Services Board partners.
