Assessment of Local Well-being


The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 sets out a statutory requirement for local authority areas to prepare a Local Well-being Plan to replace the existing Single Integrated Plan.

An Assessment of Local Well-being must be developed to include:

  • which communities are in the area

  • analysis of the state of well-being of Newport as a whole

  • analysis of the state of well-being of each community (ward profiles)

  • predictions of likely future trends in the economic, social, cultural and environmental well-being of the area

  • any other related analytical data and information that the Public Services Board considers appropriate

The assessment must also refer to:

  • national indicators as published in the National Annual Well-being Report

  • National Future Trends report

Newport approach

The Newport Assessment of Local Well-being contains an assessment of the state of well-being of Newport as a whole and 20 community well-being profiles which comprise the whole area.

Each profile will be split in to six sections:

  • preface

  • community overview

  • economic well-being

  • social well-being

  • environmental well-being

  • cultural well-being

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

In addition to the Community Profile there are other assessments that will be considered when developing the Local Well-being Plan:
