The Bridgend Public Services Board is a group of public sector and not for profit organisations (including BAVO) who work together to create a better Bridgend County Borough.

A new law called the Wellbeing of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015) was introduced in 2016. It created goals for each authority to improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural wellbeing of their area.The Act also made it a legal requirement for each local authority to create a public services board (PSB). Bridgend Public Services Board was created on 1 April 2016.

As part of the Act, the Bridgend Public Service Board collected data and information and asked local people about the strengths and challenges facing the area, both now and in the future. The information was used to develop the Bridgend Assessment of Well-being which was published in April 2017 and helps us to understand the needs of our citizens and communities and will be updated regularly. 

The wellbeing assessment along with other key information was used to develop the
| Well-being Plan for Bridgend County Boroughwhich tells us how to improve well-being in our local area and what we need to do in order to achieve this. It also shows how following the plan will help us to meet the seven well-being goals set out in the Act.

The key elements of the Public Services Board structure for well-being in Bridgend County Borough include:

  • Safe and Cohesive Communities;
  • Best Start in Life;
  • Healthy Choices in a Healthy Environment;
  • Reducing Social and Economonic Inequalities.
