Public Service Board

Public services boards were established across Wales on 1st April 2016 under the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 (the Act), bringing together public services to improve the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of their area, now and for future generations. This legislation makes it a statutory requirement for public services boards across Wales to undertake assessments of well-being for their area on a 5 year cycle and to use these assessments to develop and deliver well-being plans that will contribute to achieving the Welsh Government’s 7 well-being goals.
