Gwent Public Services Board

Gwent Public Services Board (PSB) was established in October 2021 following the merger of five former PSBs, including One Newport, that operated on a local authority footprint in the Gwent region.  One Newport is now a sub-group of the Gwent PSB with the following tasks:

    • Continue to deliver and report on the current Local Well-being Plan for Newport until April 2023.
    • Deliver local priorities in the future Gwent Well-being Plan.
    • Contribute to regional projects.
    • Provide update reports to Gwent PSB and contribute to the annual report.
    • Report to local and regional Scrutiny Committees.

One Newport also has additional functions, which are to:

    • Develop and deliver activity in Newport that would benefit from a strong partnership approach.
    • Receive reports from, inform and support the work of the statutory Community Safety Partnership for Newport, “Safer Newport”.
