Local well-being plan 2018
Working together to build a better future.
In Swansea, we believe in the rights of every person.
Through this plan, ' Working Together to Build a Better Future (PDF) [1MB]', our vision is to work together to make Swansea a place which is prosperous, where our natural environment is appreciated and maintained and where every person can have the best start in life, get a good job, live well, age well and have every opportunity to be healthy, happy, safe and the best they can be.
Using information from the Assessment of local well-being (2017) and by listening to people, we have identified four objectives and a cross-cutting action where working together will make the biggest difference to improve Swansea's well-being.
1. Early years - Children have the best start in life to be the best they can be.
2. Live well, age well - To make Swansea a great place to live and age well.
3. Working with nature - To improve health, supporting biodiversity and reduce our carbon footprint.
4. Strong communities - To build strong communities with a sense of pride and belonging.
'Sharing for Swansea' - Our Cross Cutting Action is to make sure all services work together more in Swansea by sharing resources, assets and knowledge.
We want our plan to be useful and easy for everybody to read so we have made several versions.
The plan is summarised in our 'plan on a page', this is quick to read.

How the plan was written
Swansea's local well-being plan was developed by listening to people and using evidence from our assessment of local well-being. Please read our Local Well-being Plan Consultation Response document (Word doc) [95KB] document to find out more about how we asked citizens, service users, experts, staff, managers, children and leaders etc., for their help. This also summarises what they said and how we responded and used these comments and ideas to build a better plan.
More information on the process is detailed in the Swansea PSB Well-being Objectives Report (PDF) [179KB].
