A Wales of Cohesive Communities

Attractive, safe, viable and well-connected.

The Commissioner’s current analysis shows that Public bodies and Public Services Boards have set more well-being objectives on the theme of ‘community’ than any other topic. It is reassuring to see this focus from public bodies on the communities they serve.

While many good initiatives are focusing on community well-being, we now need to build on this and deliver a coherent approach to planning, resourcing and delivery of services and infrastructure within communities.

The COVID-19 crisis has shown what can be achieved when public bodies work closely with community-help initiatives in their areas, particularly concerning vulnerable and isolated people, and this should continue beyond the pandemic to help connect Wales’ communities.
