In 2010 local partners in Blaenau Gwent worked together through a process to produce ‘making a Difference’: The big 20 year plan for Blaenau Gwent 2010 to 2030. This document was the community strategy for Blaenau Gwent prepared under the requirements of the Local Government Measure (2009)
This important strategy document sets out an agreed path towards a long term vision for the Blaenau Gwent area.
Also outlined were key themes to work towards, as well as outlining what needed to be done for each theme. These themes were not meant to cover the complete responsibilities of the partners, but focus on the issues where partner organisations needed to work together to improve outcomes.
In Blaenau Gwent , there have been five main plans that were developed and implemented to help the delivery of the intention set out in ‘Making a Difference’ : The big 20 year plan for Blaenau Gwent 2010 to 2030 . These were:
Blaenau Gwent Healthier Future III Strategy 2011 to 2014
Blaenau Gwent Children and Young People’s Plan 2011 to 2014
Blaenau Gwent Community Safety Strategy 2011 to 2014
Blaenau Gwent Regeneration Strategy 2008 to 2018
Blaenau Gwent Local Development Plan 2021
To develop and deliver each of these plans for Blaenau Gwent, a number of groups were set up. These groups were called partnerships and were made up of representatives from major organisations working in the area.
