The board is one of 22 being set up in local authority areas around Wales its role is to influence key decisions being made by public organisations.

In Swansea the board brings together expertise and decision-makers from a wide range of organisations such as the health service, emergency services, Natural Resources Wales, Swansea Council for Voluntary Services and the council.

Public Services Boards (PSBs), which are statutory, have been set up as successor bodies to Local Service Boards and their job is to oversee and support organisations to co-ordinate their work in the interests of residents.

The Swansea meeting is taking place in Committee Room 3a of the Guildhall from 12.30pm. The meeting is open to the public and there will be a section at the start of the meeting at which they will be able to ask questions about items on the agenda.

The agenda includes a briefing from Sophie Howe, the Welsh Government's Future Generations Commissioner, and a discussion about the board's priorities in its first year of operation.

Cllr Rob Stewart, Leader of Swansea Council, said: "The PSBs have a legal mandate from the Welsh Government to make sure local bodies work together to protect and promote the well-being of all our residents.

"At a time when demand for public and voluntary services is growing and the amount of public funding is decreasing, the PSB can play a vital role in ensuring that money is spent wisely and that decisions made by one organisation dovetail well with those being made by others."
