The Blaenau Gwent PSB publishes its second Annual Report ‘Two Years of Progress’ today (30th September 2020), as agreed by the PSB at our virtual meeting on Monday 21st September and in accordance with the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.
The PSB has a statutory requirement to produce an annual report each year on the progress made towards achieving the objectives set out in the Well-being Plan: The Blaenau Gwent We Want 2018 to 2023. In light of the ongoing challenges faced in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic the intention is to publish the annual progress report for 2019/20 in the Autumn of 2020, which is a little later than usual.
Blaenau Gwent Public Services Board (PSB) has published its first Annual Report, ‘Our First Year, 2018-19’ outlining the progress we’ve made towards delivering our five well-being objectives in our local well-being plan, ‘The Blaenau Gwent We Want, 2018-23’. The annual report was launched at the PSB’s Annual Conference, held at the General Offices, Ebbw Vale on Monday 15th July, 2019.
In June 2018, Blaenau Gwent Public Services Board (PSB) launched its Well-being Plan; “The Blaenau Gwent We Want 2018-2023” at South Wales’ biggest biodiversity event
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.
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.
