Well Being Needs Assessment support

Public Service Boards across Wales will be well advanced in undertaking the necessary data collection, analysis and engagement work, required to complete a Well Being Assessment for their area by the end of March 2017. This outline prospectus briefly sets out the range of services Sustainable Regeneration Solutions (a not for profit, Welsh based place making research practice) can provide, to assist Public Service Boards, and their member organisations, in producing a high quality Well Being Needs Assessment in the timescale required.

SRS is led by Chris Ashman who is a well respected advocate of the better linkage of public services planning, with a detailed understanding of public sector ,business, community and third sector needs. In his previous roles Chris developed, in partnership, the first Community Strategy for Rhondda Cynon Taff, Place Plans in Monmouthshire and most recently the first, WBFG Act compliant, Well Being Plan in Wales for Llanelli Rural council.
