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.
