Collaborative footprint for public services in Wales
Building on the areas relating to Local Health Boards and Police Authorities, the footprint provides:
- a framework within which public services can develop consistent approaches to new collaborative working arrangements;
- clarity on how public services should collaborate; and
- greater stability and reduced complexity.
The footprint identified six collaborative areas:
- Isle of Anglesey County Council
- Gwynedd Council
- Conwy County Borough Council
- Denbighshire County Council
- Flintshire County Council
- Wrexham County Borough Council
- Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council
- Caerphilly County Borough Council
- Monmouthshire County Council
- Torfaen County Borough Council
- Newport City Council
- Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council
- Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council
- Bridgend County Borough Council
- Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council
- City and County of Swansea Council
Mid and West
- Powys County Council
- Ceredigion County Council
- Carmarthenshire County Council
- Pembrokeshire County Council
Cardiff and Vale
- Cardiff Council
- Vale of Glamorgan Council
The Collaborative Footprint for Public Services is the Welsh Government’s response to the need for leadership on this aspect of public service delivery; it is not a blueprint for reorganisation. It also reflects the principles and ethos which were started in the Wales spatial plan focusing upon people, places and futures.
Previous dialogue with delivery partners across Sectors in Wales highlighted the complexities of service delivery where there were different ‘footprints’ for different policy areas and organisations and the concern that this would become more complex with the implementation of changes arising from the Simpson Compact and The Vivian Thomas Review ‘ The Structure of Education Services in Wales’ and the policy statement Sustainable Social Services for Wales, A Framework for Action.
The footprint does not require the removal of existing collaborative arrangements which are proving effective and effective. There is a shared expectation that future collaborative working will be aligned to this footprint including aggregation of these areas where larger scale regional delivery of services is required or appropriate.
Each of the 6 areas has a Chief Executive level regional lead who sits on the Public Services Leadership Group (PSLG).
