Well-being Plan

WELL-BEING PLAN FOR PEMBROKESHIRE

One of the key statutory functions of the PSB under the Well-being of Future Generations Act is to produce a Well-being Plan .  The Well-being Plan sets out how the PSB will work together to improve the well-being of people and communities in Pembrokeshire, now and in the future.

The Well-being Plan has been produced following an extensive programme of research, evidence gathering and engagement to find out what really matters to people in the County.  The key elements of this process have been:

 

  • Well-being Assessment and consideration of its findings

  • PSB stakeholder and sub-group event

  • Identification of emerging priority areas

  • Priority setting through an online survey

  • Engagement events

  • PSB workshop

  • Front-line staff events held at 4 locations across the County

  • Reports to Partnerships Overview and Scrutiny Committee (by way of a standing item on the agenda)

  • Production of a draft Well-being Plan

  • Formal consultation period on the draft Plan

  • Amendments made to the Plan in view of comments from consultation

It is important to note that the Well-being Plan represents the additional value that can be delivered through working innovatively and collaboratively as partners.  It does not replace the core services of the individual organisations nor is its purpose to simply reflect the good work already being undertaken by individual partners. 

 

The PSB has identified two overarching well-being objectives as the framework for the Plan.  These are:

Who we are: We want to help our people, communities and organisations so that we can support ourselves and each other

Where we live: We want to protect and enhance our natural assets whilst optimising economic prospects, accessibility and health for all

 

There are four priorities sitting under the objectives (two under each):

Who we are

Where we live

Living & Working

Tackling Rurality

Resourceful Communities

Protecting our Environment

 

Finally, the PSB has identified eight integrated projects which can make a contribution across and towards all the four priorities and maximise the PSB’s contribution to social, environmental, economic and cultural well-being:

 

1.

Recruitment and Employment Transformation Framework

2.

Environmental and Climate Change Risk Assessment

3.

Becoming a Carbon Neutral County

4.

Doing Things Differently

5.

Celebrating the Great Outdoors

6.

Community Participation

7.

Understanding our Communities

8.

Meaningful Community Engagement

 

The PSB will utilise a mixed approach to delivery of the eight projects adopting the most appropriate method, such as a standing sub-group, task group or individual lead, depending on the work which needs to be done. 

Further updates will appear here in due course.
