Well-being plan

Published: 20/04/2018

Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet will be asked to endorse the Flintshire Public Services Board Well-being Plan (“the Plan”) when it meets later this month. Flintshire County Council is both a statutory partner and the lead partner for coordinating the Plan which will be adopted at a meeting of the full County Council later the same day. Flintshire has a longstanding and proud track record of partnership working. The communities it serves expect statutory and third sector partners to work together with shared priorities. All public sector partners have shown strong commitment to working together to achieve a vision and common priorities for the future well-being of our county. The Public Services Board (PSB) was formed in April 2016, as a statutory responsibility of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015. Its work has focused on the production of the Well-being Assessment and the development of the Well-being Plan which will be published in May 2018. The Plan has been developed alongside the Council Plan and the priorities of both are strongly aligned. Flintshire County Council’s Leader, Councillor Aaron Shotton, said: “All partners have worked extremely well together demonstrating creativity, willingness and accountability within a strong leadership framework. “The high level aim of the Flintshire PSB is to “protect, sustain and improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of Flintshire through collaborative working as a single public service”. Having witness the enthusiastic support from all PSB partners, I am confident that together we shall achieve this. “The Plan fits well with other work being done in the region to improved our infrastructure and provide increased employment opportunities for local residents.” The PSB has selected and endorsed five priorities for the Well-being Plan as outlined below: ? Community Safety ? Economy and Skills ? Environment ? Health and Independent Living ? Resilient Communities
