Consultation on the Powys Wellbeing Plan

Powys' Public Service Board (PSB) has launched a 12 week public consultation upon the final draft of Powys' Wellbeing Plan. The Plan sets out long term priorities for improvements in Powys, and is the beginning of a strategic planning process to run until2040 under the requirements of the Wellbeing of Future Generations (Wales) Act.

The new plan will be the over-arching plan to inform and guide all other public sector and partnership plans in Powys and will replace the present One Powys Plan. It sets out 15 key well-being issues that the Public Service Board wants to focus on to improve the well-being of residents of Powys: Adventure Tourism; Apprenticeships; Branding of Powys; Communicating with Partners; Communities; Digital Infrastructure; Emotional Health; Engagement; Environment; Home Support; Lifelong Learning; Lobbying for transport investment; Monitoring our steps; Seamless services; and Transport.

The consultation seeks your views on whether these 15 topics are the right areas to focus upon and whether you feel there are specific actions that are important to take to deliver against them. The final version of the plan will be important to voluntary groups and community organisations as it will influence the actions taken (and funding used) to deliver against many of issues of concern to our Sector and the individuals we work with. Once the Plan is agreed then multi-agency partnership groups will be established to develop and take forward the detailed actions needed.

PAVO will be putting on a number of opportunities at forthcoming meetings and events between now and February 2018 to give you an opportunity to give your views. PAVO shall also be putting together a response to the consultation on behalf of the Sector and we will be seeking your views to inform this.

In the meantime you can view the draft Plan and its supporting documentation at:

It is also possible to complete an online survey response to the consultation at:

The online survey is open until 11 February 2018, and the final version of the Powys Wellbeing Plan will be published in April 2018.
