What is the Neath Port Talbot Public Services Board?

The Neath Port Talbot Public Services Board brings together leaders and decision makers from public services organisations and the voluntary and community sector. The purpose of the Public Services Board is to improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of Neath Port Talbot.

The Neath Port Talbot Public Services Board is made up of four statutory member organisations: Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board, Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council, Natural Resources Wales and Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service

The Board also invites a number of other partners to participate in its activity as ‘invited participants’, these include:



 

Our Vision for Neath Port Talbot

We want Neath Port Talbot to be a vibrant and healthy place where people have an equal chance to get on in life - a place where people want to live, learn, work, invest and visit for many generations to come.

We want local public services, including the Third Sector, to be effective and value for money, easy for people to use, and offer quality employment where people are valued and appreciated for the work they do. Together with citizens, we will build on our strong and cohesive communities where the rights of everyone will be respected and protected.

We want our public services to be focused on enabling people and communities to be resilient and it will be the norm for citizens to experience seamless, personalised high quality services. Public service delivery will create the right conditions for investment that will enable the county borough to attract and sustain quality, sustainable employment for local people.

Our communities will be well connected through a first class digital and transport infrastructure and our natural environment will be protected but also developed to support healthy living and investment.

We will have achieved our vision when all children and young people have the best start in life; when all young people and adults have the skills and resilience to be healthy and prosperous; when people are safe and feel safe; when all of our communities are thriving and supporting the people who live there and where people can draw on the support of neighbours and well developed social networks.

 

What is a Well-being Plan and why do we need one?

The Well-being Plan sets out the Public Services Board’s long term vision for the area as well as priorities for action over the next 5 years.

The Plan is developed around an extensive set of data and research evidence which was published in the Well-being Assessment May 2017. It considers what is good about Neath Port Talbot; the challenges facing the area now and into the long term; and where through working together (but differently) there is a significant opportunity to bring about improvements in the well-being of local people.



The Well-being Assessment identified 75 issues for the Board to consider when developing its well-being objectives for inclusion in this plan. At a workshop in June 2017, the Board undertook a series of prioritisation exercises which drew out key themes, such as:

  • Physical health;
  • Crime and community safety;
  • Mental and emotional health;
  • Services and Facilities, and;
  • Poverty

After grouping issues into these themes, the Board applied a set of tests to identify which of these issues would benefit from collective action. These tests helped the Board identify six different opportunities to collaborate to have a positive impact on the state of well-being in Neath Port Talbot:

  • Support children in their early years, especially children at risk of adverse childhood experiences
  • Create safe, confident and resilient communities focusing on vulnerable people
  • Put more life into our later years – ageing well
  • Promote well-being through work and in the workplace
  • Value our green infrastructure and the contribution it makes to our well-being, and:
  • Tackle digital exclusion

Consultation

The Public Services Board will use a two tier approach to the public consultation

Tier 1: using the Citizen Engagement Scheme the Board designed a public consultation to give a wide range of interested bodies and the general public the opportunity to comment on the draft vision and the draft objectives identified by the Public Services Board. The public consultation ran from 9th November 2017 to 1st February 2018.

Tier 2: using the Citizen Engagement Scheme lead officers undertook focused consultation/engagement activities on their particular work activities.
