Cardiff Public Services Board
Public Services Boards (PSBs) have been established under the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 to improve economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being through stronger partnership working.
The statutory members of the Board are as follows:
- The City of Cardiff Council
- Cardiff and Vale University Health Board
- South Wales Fire and Rescue
- Natural Resources Wales.
The Board must also invite a number of other partners to participate in its activity as ‘invited participants’:
- The Welsh Ministers
- The Chief Constable of South Wales Police
- The South Wales Police and Crime Commissioner
- Representatives of the National Probation Service and Community Rehabilitation Company
- Cardiff Third Sector Council.
Other partners who exercise functions of a public nature can also be involved in the delivery of its work.
In Cardiff we have a Full Public Services Board which meets three times a year and provides strategic management of the agenda and an Executive Public Services Board which ensures progress is made against well-being objectives.
As required by the Act, PSBs have a duty to assess the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of the local area and to produce a local well-being plan setting out well-being objectives that will contribute to achieving the Welsh Government’s 7 well-being goals. More can be found on these goals on the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 here.
The Cardiff Public Services Board replaced the Cardiff Partnership Board and the Cardiff and Vale Joint Local Services Board.
