A number of cross-cutting themes, both needs and assets, are common to more than one of the population groups described here. These priority areas may each benefit from an overarching approach rather than a series of parallel interventions in the different topic areas.
In existence are various information and data tools that provide a range of health and social care statistics of relevance to the work of the Partnership. These include:
- Welsh Government: Welsh Health and Care Statistics Mapping Tool
- Welsh Government: StatsWales
- Public Health Wales: Document Database
- Public Health Wales: Reports and Analysis
- Public Health Wales: Data Sources
- Social Care Wales: National Social Care Dataset for Wales
- Institute for Public Care: Daffodil Cymru – Population Projections
- Care Inspectorate Wales: Reports
- NHS Wales Informatics Service: Information and Statistics
Cardiff’s local Well-being Plan sets out their Public Service Board’s priorities for action over the next 5 years, and beyond. The plan focuses on the areas of public service delivery which fundamentally require partnership working between the city’s public and community services, and with the citizens of Cardiff.
‘Our Vale – Our Future’ is the Vale of Glamorgan’s first Well-being Plan and represents a significant change in how the PSB are working together to improve well-being across the Vale. The Well-being Plan provides the framework for our core collaborative activities between 2018 and 2023. The Plan responds to, and is informed by the findings of their Well-being Assessment which was undertaken in 2017.
Every year, the Director of Social Services publishes a report to present a publicly accountable picture of Social Services in Cardiff. The report recognises strengths and weaknesses, and enables the Council to know what they must focus on over the next three years to further improve the service.

Every year, the Welsh Government publishes a report that presents information on the social services functions of local authorities based on the aims of the the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014.
Each year, the Welsh Government undertakes a national survey involving over 11,000 people from across the whole of Wales. The survey covers a range of topics with a focus on well-being and people’s views on public services.
Cardiff’s assessment of local well-being is comprised of a Summary Document, providing the context for the development of the assessment and highlighting some of its main findings; Cardiff’s Liveable City Report 2017, which gives an overview of Cardiff’s well-being; and neighbourhood well-being assessments, which look in more detail at the well-being of each of Cardiff’s six neighbourhood partnership areas, in order to highlight some of the differences between the city’s communities: Cardiff North, Cardiff East, Cardiff South East, City & Cardiff South, Cardiff South West and Cardiff West.
The data and other evidence used to develop the draft Well-being Assessment can be found here.
The Vale Public Services Board published its Well-being Assessment in April 2017. The Assessment was the first main task for the board as part of the requirements under the Well-being of Future Generations Act. The assessment of local Well-being provides the PSB with an extensive evidence base and has helped us to understand more about what matters to our communities and the needs and assets of our local area. We have used the assessment to inform the development of the Well-being Plan.
The assessment contains a range of detailed evidence, including data, research and engagement information which paints a detailed picture of well-being in the Vale. Through undertaking the assessment we have identified how we can work together to improve the social, economic, cultural and environmental well-being of the Vale through our Well-being Plan.
The well-being assessment can be found here.
The aim of HEART is to deliver a revolution in the way we deliver health and social care, where citizens are partners in the design and delivery of care, using all of the assets available in local communities to support people to live independent and fulfilling lives. Click here to find out more.
In November 2016, the partner organisations agreed to develop this overarching HEART Strategic Blueprint document.
The strategy sets out how Cardiff and Vale University Health Board and its partners intend to deliver agreed strategic objectives over the next ten years. It describes the challenges partners face, the principles which will underpin the development of their services and the steps intended to bring about the change required to achieve the vision. It recognises the need to take a balanced approach to achieving change for our population, service priorities, sustainability and culture.
