Community Well-Being and Resilience Project Pembrokeshire

Community Well-Being and Resilience Project Pembrokeshire

The project is a two-year pilot, funded by the Arwain Sir Benfro LEADER programme. It will explore how town and community councils can build community well-being and resilience, by engaging their communities to develop local well-being assessments, plans and project activities. These will feed into and inform the county-wide Well-Being Assessment and Plan undertaken by the Public Services Board (PSB), as required by the Well-Being of Future Generations Act (2015). It will also look at how Community and Town Councils can support the delivery of the Pembrokeshire Well-Being Plan.

The project will –

  • Support up to 12 local councils to develop well-being assessments and plans at a community level (helping people think about well-being and resilience in their communities and the part they can play in it)
  • Develop and utilise new engagement and well-being assessment tools and produce a toolkit
  • Encourage and support innovative well-being and community resilience project activities
  • Evaluate the learning for sharing with the PSB and others in Pembrokeshire and beyond

PLANED has a long and successful history of working with and engaging communities. The Community Well-being and Resilience Project (CWBR) will explore how town and community councils can build community well-being and resilience.

The project aims to put policy into practice. The Well-Being of Future Generations Act (2015) is a ground-breaking piece of legislation that requires public bodies in Wales to work better with others and take a more joined up, preventative, and long term approach so that their decisions have a positive impact on people living in the future, as well as those living today.

Information gathered will feed into and inform the county-wide Well-Being Assessment and Plan undertaken by the Public Services Board (PSB), as required by the Well-Being of Future Generations Act (2015). It will also look at how community and town councils can support the delivery of the Pembrokeshire Well-Being Plan.

These reports contain key findings and proposed actions for Town and Community Councils to review and consider for the future well-being and resilience of their community.
