Newport community well-being profiles

Newport community profiles bring together a range of information about Newport, its people and communities and their needs in a standard, easy-to-use format.

The profiles are designed to provide an overview of the population by presenting a range of data including population, diversity, households, health, education, housing, benefits and levels of deprivation.

The information is given through a series of charts and graphs with supporting thematic map analysis, with key bullet points and narrative.

Where appropriate the Newport and Wales averages are included in the charts and graphs for comparison purposes.

The Census of Population and Households section is taken from 2011 Census data and mid-year population estimates. 

The Newport profiles aim to provide information and intelligence that:

  • Inform the development and review of strategies, policies and plans across Newport
  • Increase understanding of local needs and helps improve the quality of services provided to Newport’s residents
  • Improve the sharing of research, data and intelligence among partners and minimises duplication
  • Contribute to better quality of life for the people of Newport

The profiles have been produced in collaboration with a wide range of partners.

Ward profiles to community well-being profiles

To tie in with all the good work that has already been undertaken in Newport, the former ward profiles have been reviewed, developed and refined to become community well-being profiles.

This incorporates the previous work undertaken within the ward profiles and meets the needs of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.

Twenty community well-being profiles have been developed along with a community well-being profile for Newport as a whole. 

The community well-being profiles were signed off by the Public Services Board on 25 April 2017 following a consultation with a number of statutory consultees including its own members, other partners, local authority scrutiny committee, voluntary sector organisations and the public.
