About Us

The purpose of Public Services Boards (PSBs) is to improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of the area by strengthening joint working across all public services in Wales.

The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 establishes statutory PSBs which replace the voluntary Local Service Boards in each local authority area. The board will:

  • Assess the state of economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of the area
  • Set objectives that are designed to maximise the PSBs contribution to the well-being goals

Each PSB must prepare and publish a plan setting out its objectives and the steps it will take to meet them. This is called a Local Well-being Plan and the Board must consult widely in the preparation of the plan.

Each PSB will carry out an annual review of their plan showing their progress.


The Statutory Members of each Public Services Board are:

  • The Local Authority
  • The Local Health Board
  • The Fire and Rescue Authority
  • Natural Resources Wales

In addition to the statutory members each PSB will invite the following people to participate:

  • Welsh Ministers
  • Chief Constables
  • The Police and Crime Commissioner
  • Certain Probation Services
  • At least one body representing relevant voluntary organisations

PSBs can also invite other public service organisations to participate.

Here in Gwynedd and Môn, we have invited representation from the Local National Park Authority, Public Health Wales, the housing sector and the further and higher education sectors.
