Each local authority and health board are required to prepare and publish a plan setting out the range and level of services they propose to provide, or arrange to be provided, in response to the population needs assessment. Area plans must include the specific services planned in response to each core theme identified in the population assessment. As part of this, area plans must include: • the actions partners will take in relation to the priority areas of integration for Regional Partnership Boards; • the instances and details of pooled funds to be established in response to the population assessment; • how services will be procured or arranged to be delivered, including by alternative delivery models; • details of the preventative services that will be provided or arranged; • actions being taken in relation to the provision of information, advice and assistance services; and • actions required to deliver services through the medium of Welsh. The first area plans must be published by 1 April 2018 and the Regional Partnership Board will ensure links between the Area Plan and the local authority Well-being Plans required under the Well-being of Future Generations Act to facilitate collaborative working and avoid duplication. A draft Area Plan has been produced and we welcome views and comments by Friday 9th Feb 2018.
In July 2017 over sixty organisations and projects in Blaenau Gwent came together to help shape the indicative priorities for future well-being in the area. The workshop allowed the Blaenau Gwent Public Services Board to get a better of understanding participant views, knowledge and experience of the ‘indicative priorities’ that have been developed so far.
We want you to help us make Blaenau Gwent a better place for future generations. Between now and 14th September 2017 we are asking local people to look at our initial priorities for improving the area and tell us what they think needs to be done to make them happen.
