20th June 2017 (Carmarthenshire Public Service Board)

#IdeasExchange – an opportunity to share your thoughts on the future of services in Carmarthenshire

We hope you can join us at one of our engagement events to give us your innovative ideas for the work that will be done by Carmarthenshire Public Services Board (PSB) over the next five years.

The PSB, which is made up of public sector organisations across the county, is running 3 engagement events in July and wants to hear from you on what the Board should focus on.

By May 2018 the PSB is required to publish a five year County Well-being Plan that will say how the PSB will work together to improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of Carmarthenshire.  This is a requirement of the PSB under the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act.

The #IdeasExchange workshop will take place at the following locations between 1.30pm and 4.30pm:

Wednesday 5 July 2017 – Lliedi Suite, Selwyn Samuel Centre, Llanelli

Wednesday 12 July 2017 – Dynefor Bowls Club, Ammanford

Wednesday 19 July 2017 – St Peter’s Civic Hall, Carmarthen

The PSB have already developed draft Well-being Objectives for the Plan based on the Assessment of Local Well-being.  Results from the engagement campaign that was undertaken last year as well as other extensive research have been fed into the Carmarthenshire Well-Being Assessment 2017 which has now been published and is available on the PSB (‘The Carmarthenshire We Want’) website.

For further information on the PSB, visit The Carmarthenshire We Want
