We are currently updating our Population Needs Assessment for North Wales, which is a report about the needs of people who use care and support services and the support needs of carers.
We want to include as much information as possible about what matters to people who use care and support services and to carers. To do this we are:
- carrying out our own surveys and consultation events;
- pulling together information from previous surveys and consultation events; and,
- working with partners to share information about similar projects.
There are a lot of similar pieces of work happening at the moment. The Public Services Boards also need to assess the well-being of people living in North Wales; there is a national review happening about the impact of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) 2014 Act; and, there are lots of other projects happening about how to improve specific health and care services.
As we have different requirements, timescales and pieces of legislation guiding this work, we have not been able to coordinate into one universal opportunity to have your say. But what we are able to do, is to share all the findings so that if you have contributed to one of our surveys or taken part in one event, we will use what you said to inform all of our work so you don’t need to share the same information over and over. You are also welcome to take part in as many of these surveys or events as you would like.
We have listed below the projects that we are working with and if you would like any more information, please email us at email@example.com
Opportunities to have your say on health, social care and well-being services in North Wales
Public Services Board wellbeing assessment consultations
Public Services Boards (PSB) improve joint working across all public services in each local authority area in Wales. Each board must carry out a well-being assessment and publish an annual local well-being plan. The plan sets out how they will meet their responsibilities under the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act.
County Conversation / Corporate plan engagement
Local councils would like to hear what you think about your local community and what they can do to improve the places where you live and work. Corporate plans are plans that local councils put together.
