Cardiff is a growing city, and with success comes challenges as well as opportunities. Public organisations in the city and county of Cardiff are now collaborating to address short and long-term challenges, take preventative action, involve citizens and integrate their services to deliver greater well-being.

On Tuesday 8th May, an event ‘Cardiff Tomorrow: The Future of Public Services in Cardiff’ was held. The event included life stories from the people of Cardiff illustrating the challenges we all face as well as the benefits of working together.  Speeches by leaders of three of the public service bodies in the city, presented their vision for the future with a focus on the importance of collaboration.
