PSB Annual Conference

The Public Services Board Annual Conference was set up to provide an opportunity for the key decision makers from across Caerphilly county borough to come together. The conference provided an opportunity to look at ways of improving the quality of life for residents, people who work here and visitors

The PSB Annual Conference replaced the previous Standing Conference which was twice yearly.

Due to the Covid pandemic the conference was cancelled last year and there will be no conference in 2021 but details of the conference in 2019 are provided below.


2019 Annual Conference

The first PSB Annual Conference took place on Friday, 5th July 2019 at Llancaiach Fawr Medieval Manor, Nelson.

Caerphilly PSB were pleased to welcome Sophie Howe, Future Generations Commissioner for Wales to give the keynote speech and Claire Germain from Welsh Government’s Local Government and Partnerships Division.

The PSB launched their first Annual Report (see Progress page) highlighting the progress made in the first year since the publication of “The Caerphilly We Want” Wellbeing Plan 2018-2023. Delegates were given the opportunity to see the new on-line version of the Wellbeing Assessment which is being developed in conjunction with Data Cymru, which will enable the PSB and partners to have up-to-date data about the borough at their fingertips.

The Voluntary Sector Liaison Sub Committee were delighted to have the opportunity to launch the new version of the Caerphilly Third Sector Partnership Agreement (2018-2023) at the event, which has been updated to reflect the need for closer collaboration across all partners to achieve the aims of the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act and Social Services and Wellbeing Act, and ensure third sector organisations play a full part.
