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
