Public Services Board

One Newport is the city’s Public Services Board (PSB) where local public, private and and third sector organisations work together to improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of the city.

PSBs were established by the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015  (Shared Purpose: Shared Future) and work with the sustainable development principle and achievement of the seven well-being goals by:

    • assessing the state of the city's economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being;
    • setting local objectives that are designed to maximise their contribution within the city to achieving those goals; and
    • taking all reasonable steps to meet those objectives

The sustainable development principle takes into account five ways of working that public bodies need to show that they applied the principle: 

    • Long term
    • Prevention
    • Integration
    • Collaboration
    • Involvement

Membership includes representatives of:

    • Newport City Council (statutory member)
    • Aneurin Bevan University Health Board (statutory member)
    • Natural Resources Wales (statutory member)
    • South Wales Fire and Rescue Service (statutory member)
    • Gwent Police
    • Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent
    • Probation Service
    • Welsh Government
    • Public Health Wales
    • Coleg Gwent
    • University of South Wales
    • Gwent Association of Voluntary Organisations
    • Newport Live
    • Registered social landlords represented by Newport City Homes
    • Chair, Newport Third Sector Partnership
    • Youth Council

Other private, public and voluntary sector organisations are part of the wider partnership and may be invited to participate in the work of the PSB when required.

To support the function of the PSB a partnership structure has been established that shows how the PSB and its sub-groups link together.

To give all members of One Newport a better understanding of the partnership an Induction Pack has been compiled bringing together the key information.
