Background to the Ceredigion Local Well-being Plan

Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015

The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015, came into force in April 2016. This Act requires public sector bodies to come together through a Public Services Board (PSB) for their local areas.

Assessment of Local Well-being

The Assessment of Local Well-being is a statutory requirement under the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015, and its purpose is to set out what is important to people and communities in Ceredigion in terms of well-being.

Ceredigion Assessment of Local Well-being 2022

This is the second Assessment produced by the Ceredigion PSB since the introduction of the Act. The Assessment is informed by data, research and evidence gathering, from listening to people and stakeholders, and through consideration of future trends and the things which we can project might happen tomorrow, which we need to start planning for today. The Assessment provides the evidence base for the Local Well-being Plan, which will determine what Ceredigion PSB will do over the next 5 years to improve the well-being of people and communities in the County.

The PSB approved the Ceredigion Assessment of Local Well-being 2022 at the beginning of March 2022. The Assessment and appendices 1-12 (which includes the methodology, engagement information, data sources and gaps and community profiles) are located on the related documents tab to the right.

Local Well-being Plan

The PSB is required to set Well-being Objectives designed to maximise its contribution to achieving the National Well-being Goals, within Ceredigion. These will form the basis for the 5-year Local Well-being Plan which sets out how the Board will be working together to improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of Ceredigion.

The new Local Well-being Plan (2023-2028) is currently out for public consultation. This is the second Plan produced by the Ceredigion PSB since the introduction of the Act. This draft Well-being Plan and the proposed Well-being Objectives within it have been informed by the Well-being Assessment carried out during 2021-2022. We would welcome your comments on the draft Plan ahead of final publication in May 2023. For more information on how to have your say, please visit the consultations page. This consultation is open until 31st of January 2023.
