Views sought on the Draft Wellbeing Plan

Views sought on the Draft Wellbeing Plan

Neath Port Talbot Public Services Board has published a draft Local Well-being Plan and is asking for feedback to help ensure that the final plan will help to improve well-being across the county borough.

The Board brings together public, private and third sector organisations to improve the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of Neath Port Talbot.

Cllr. Rob Jones, Council Leader and Chair of the Neath Port Talbot Public Services Board said:

“In May 2017, the Board published a well-being assessment that captures the strengths and assets of people and communities across the county borough.

“The assessment told us that Neath Port Talbot has a lot to be proud of, such as our beautiful natural environment, our rich cultural and industrial heritage and our track record of attracting investment. It also highlighted the challenges and opportunities we face now and in the future in terms of improving social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being.

“The assessment has informed the priorities in the Draft Local Well-being Plan. We would very much appreciate feedback from residents, third sector organisations, charities, local businesses and community groups on whether these are the right things to focus on.”

The five local draft objectives in the plan are:

  • support children in their early years, especially children at risk of adverse childhood experiences
  • create safe, confident and resilient communities, focussing on vulnerable people
  • encourage Ageing Well
  • promote well-being through and in the workplace
  • recognising how the green infrastructure can promote well-being

The consultation is open until Thursday 1st February 2018 and will be used to inform the final Well-being Plan which will be published before May 2018.

More information and an online feedback form can be found at www.npt.gov.uk/psb, alternatively there are feedback boxes in Neath and Port Talbot Civic Centres, or the Libraries in Neath and Port Talbot Town Centres and Pontardawe Library, where paper versions of the feedback form can be posted.
