The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 establishes a statutory board, known as a Public Services Board (PSB), in each local authority area in Wales. The PSB is a collection of public bodies working together to improve the well-being of our county.
This means that as a group we must improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of our area by working to achieve the 7 Well-being goals . We will assess the state of economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being and publish a well-being plan setting out our local objectives and the steps we will take to meet them. Like all of the individual public bodies named in the Act, we must follow the sustainable development principle - meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Our four statutory members are:
- Carmarthenshire County Council
- Hywel Dda University Health Board
- Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service
- Natural Resources Wales
Our other partners are:
- Coleg Sir Gâr
- University of Wales Trinity Saint David
- Dyfed Powys Police
- Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner
- Department for Work & Pensions
- Carmarthenshire Association of Voluntary Services
- Welsh Government
- National Probation Service
- Wales Community Rehabilitation Company
- Brecon Beacons National Park Authority
All of our meetings and events are available to view on our 'Get Involved' page. Each meeting/event has a section where you are welcome to submit any questions you may want us to discuss and consider.
For further information on our purpose, aim, role and responsibilities, etc. please download our Terms of Reference.
This is the annual report of progress made against our priorities in the Integrated Community Strategy during 2015/16. This Strategy will continue to be the focus of activity for us until our new Well-being Plan is published in April 2018.
