A Guide for Public Service Professionals

This guide gives you the information you need as a public service professional to work with Swansea Public Services Board.   

For general information about Swansea Public Services Board please see the A General Guide to the Public Services Board.

How the Board affects my work

The Wellbeing Plan prepared by the Board, and the Wellbeing Assessment that informs it, cover all aspects of social, economic, environmental and cultural life in Swansea. 

You will be particularly affected if:

  • Your work involves research or evaluation - you should be aware of the Wellbeing Assessment and you may also wish to be involved in its production
  • Your work involves policy development or partnership working - you should be aware of the Wellbeing Plan and you may also wish to be involved in its development
  • Your work relates directly to one of the Wellbeing Objectives agreed as part of the Wellbeing Plan - you should be aware of the work taking place to deliver the objective and you may also wish to be directly involved in that work

Getting Information

Details of meetings including are published on the Council website.

Getting involved

Your organisation may be represented on the Board in which case you can contact the relevant representative to ask how you can be involved.

You can also contact the sponsor or coordinator for the relevant working group if you are interested in the work that they are doing.


The activities of the Board will generate a number of resources that you can use for your own work.  This will include:

The Well-being Assessment:  Will bring together a range of quantitative and qualitative research in an assessment of the following outcomes, agreed by the Board as the starting point for its work:

  • Children have a Good Start in Life
  • People Learn Successfully
  • Young People and Adults Have Good Jobs
  • People Have a Decent Standard of Living
  • People are Healthy, Safe and Independent
  • People Have Good Places to Live and Work and Visit

The Wellbeing Plan:  Following the Wellbeing Assessment this will focus on a small number of wellbeing objectives and identify how they can be delivered.

Agendas and Minutes:  Reports and presentations relating to different aspects of the Board's work will include information relevant for you as a practitioner.  The minutes of meetings will tell you what action is being taken in response to issues raised.

All of these documents, as well as other relevant reports, will be available on the Swansea Public Services Board web pages.
