The Wellbeing of Future Generations Steering Group

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board is already contributing to the goals Wellbeing of Future Generations Act.

However, we realise that there is still much to do

We’re asking everyone to think about how they might contribute to the five ways of working to make sure that our services are sustainable, and are having a positive impact on peoples experience today and in the future.

The aim of the act is to enhance the potential to improve health and well-being in local areas; and working with other public bodies and cross-sector stakeholder organisations to strengthen the impact of the Act on health and well-being, including environmental sustainability

We are working to ensure that we;

  •  Think more about the long-term in our work,
  •  Collaborate better with the population, communities and each other;
  •  Focus on prevention;
  •  Act in a more integrated way, considering how the actions we take in one area may impact on other areas;
  •  Involve the people who services are going to benefit.

We are taking a more joined-up approach in order to achieve the Wales we want.

Everyone within the Health Board can contribute to acting today for a better tomorrow in our actions, both in and out of work.
