Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act

The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 has created a Public Services Board (PSB) for each local authority area in Wales to ensure that public bodies work together to create a better future for the people of Wales.

The purpose of PSB is to improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of the area by strengthening joint working across all public services in Wales.

The statutory members which make up the Powys Public Service Board are:

  • Powys County Council
  • Powys Teaching Health Board
  • Mid and West Wales Fire Service
  • Natural Resources Wales 

The invited participants are: 

  • PAVO
  • Dyfed Powys Police
  • Police and Crime Commissioners
  • Welsh Government
  • Probation Service
  • Brecon Beacons National Park

We are required by the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 to prepare a local Well-being plan setting out how we will improve the well-being of our communities, against seven national goals.

Before we can set out a plan, we must understand the pressures that our communities are facing. To understand this, we have assessed well-being across communities in Powys. This Well-being assessment includes a range of data, evidence, and research, providing a comprehensive picture of the well-being of local people and communities now and how well-being could be influenced in the future.
