Wellbeing Assessment

Published: 22 December 2021

Cwm Taf Morgannwg Local Health Board and Bridgend County Borough Council asked BAVO for help in promoting their Wellbeing Assessment Survey.  They were looking for feedback from all kinds of people across all areas of the County which they will use to inform planning of services over the new few years.

At present 364 charities voluntary and community groups have BAVO membership; we contacted them all to ask them for help in getting the survey out to all the people they work with and encouraging them to complete it .  We also circulated to networks that BAVO is involved with.  As an incentive, BAVO ran a free prize draw ; everyone who provided us with details of their returned survey was entered.

BAVO’s community navigators, who work on the ground across the County, supported some of their clients to complete surveys, as did other BAVO team members.

We had feedback from some organisations that the survey was difficult to understand; in response to this Bridgend Council and People First produced an “easy read” version in English and Welsh which we re-circulated.

Not all of the returns came back to BAVO, some went straight to the Council, however we know that people from quite a lot of different organisations and communities completed them, including an 82 year old supported by one of our navigators and a 12-year old young person, supported by his teacher.

The winner of the prize draw was Nic Williams a volunteer trainee with Western Beacons Mountain rescue, pictured here with the Amazon Vouchers prize. (photo to follow).
