The Cwm Taf Public Services Board (PSB) has just launched a new bilingual website which provides a single point of access to information about the areas of Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taf.
The Cwm Taf Public Services Board is a collection of public bodies, including the health board, working together to improve the well-being of the communities of Rhondda Cynon Taf and Merthyr Tydfil, now and in the future.
Peter Vaughan, chair of Cwm Taf Public Services Board, said: “As a Cwm Taf resident you can use this website to learn about what the Public Service Board is, which organisations are involved, what we do, and how we work.
“There is also lots of useful information including statistics on the Cwm Taf area, including employment figures, educational attainment, measures of health, Welsh language use and key economic statistics.
“The main aim of the website is to make the work we are doing more visible to you and let you know how you can become involved in it. I hope that you will all take a look and become involved in our work as we are here to improve the well-being of future generations, so we would love for you to know more about our work and give us your views on it.”
The priority areas of working for the PSB are listed on the website and you can use the range of information and data on the pages to monitor PSB progress and performance, and hold the PSB to account. You also have the opportunity to give feedback on whether you think that the right areas are being made a priority, and whether the work of the PSB is making a difference.
One of the key areas of work being undertaken by the PSB is the well-being objectives. Following consultation with the public three draft objectives about how the PSB can improve the well-being of people living and working in the Cwm Taf area. The Our Cwm Taf website provides an opportunity for people to let the PSB know if we have the right objectives and if they are happy with the proposed steps we are taking to achieve them.
