Working to address economic inequalities in Gwent

Closed 16 Feb 2024

Opened 10 Jan 2024


The Gwent Public Services Board (PSB) would like to engage all those in Gwent who are working to address economic inequalities and enhancing our prosperity for both people and environment together. The Gwent Wellbeing Plan sets out the objectives and steps that we will take to tackle the most important issues for the people of Gwent. This survey supports and informs our understanding of how we are going to deliver the plan for the next 5 years spanning the counties of Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Newport and Torfaen.

We want to recognise, celebrate, and build on the successful projects across Gwent. By completing this survey, you will help us better understand which community groups, organisations, businesses and public bodies in Gwent are funding, planning or delivering projects that:

  • Increase economic activity
  • Addresses long-term & youth unemployment
  • Promotes decent, fair employment opportunities
  • Pathways to employment (e.g. enhances green skills, training, volunteering and apprenticeships)
  • Tackles fuel and food poverty, including insecurity and cost of living
  • Champions a wellbeing economy, where the needs of people and the environment are equally met
  • Enhances economic growth that is sustainable, green and equitably shared

Telling us about your project will help shape and inform a delivery plan that improves economic chances for everyone while ensuring those most in need get the most support. Together we can build on learning and good practice, develop ideas and innovation, and promote collaborative integrated ways of working that helps build a fairer and resilient Gwent.
