Key Partnerships

In addition to the partners who make up the membership of the PSB, the Board works with a number of key strategic partnerships: 

 

  • The Integrated Health and Social Care Partnership
     

    Through the Integrated Health and Social Care partnership, the Cardiff and Vale Regional Partnership Board (RPB) brings together colleagues who provide health and social care for the people of Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan. The partnership seeks to improve services by working more closely together for groups of people in our communities including older people, children with complex needs, those with learning difficulties and those experiencing mental health issues. The RPB has been established through the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014; the sister Act of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015. The PSB and RPB have, and continue to work in partnership to work towards improved well-being across the Vale. 

     

    Key Strategies and Policies:

  • Safer Vale Partnership
     

    The Safer Vale partnership is the Vale of Glamorgan's community safety partnership, it includes a mix of voluntary and community groups and statutory organisations supported by funding from the Office of the South Wales Police and Crime Commissioner and the Welsh Government to address local crime and disorder reduction projects. 

  • Working in Partnership with Older People 

     Work to improve the well-being of older people in the Vale of Glamorgan is embedded in the PSB’s Well-being Plan. Through embedding the needs of older people in the Vale in the Well-being Plan, the PSB is contributing to the delivery of the Welsh Government’s Strategy for Older People. To ensure we understand the diversity of issues that affect older people in the Vale, the PSB also works with the Vale 50+ Strategy Forum, a group for older people in the Vale.
