Why are we doing this?

Through Our Wrexham, Our Future, we want to hear about the things which matter most to you, and the changes which you feel would make the biggest difference to the well-being of you, your neighbours and Wrexham County Borough as a whole.

Your views will directly influence the way in which we think about well-being across the county, and the collective actions we can all take to make Wrexham a better place for everyone in the months and years ahead.

Who are we?

Our Wrexham Our Future is being led by the Public Services Board (PSB) for Wrexham, which brings together public bodies across the County Borough, and is made up of:

 

  • Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board
  • Coleg Cambria
  • Department of Work & Pensions
  • North Wales Fire and Rescue
  • Natural Resources Wales
  • North Wales Police
  • Public Health Wales
  • The Association of Voluntary Organisations in Wrexham (AVOW)
  • North Wales National Probation Service
  • Welsh Government
  • Wrexham County Borough Council
  • Wrexham Glyndŵr University

Our role as your Public Services Board is to work with each other, and with the communities of Wrexham County Borough, to make a positive difference to well-being for all. We were formed (alongside other Public Services Boards across Wales) through the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015, which also sets out the '7 well-being goals' which are our collective Wales-wide vision.

What do we want to know?

To achieve our goal, of making a positive difference to well-being for all, we develop well-being plans every 5 years, informed by a well-being assessment. Wrexham County Borough’s next Well-being Plan (for 2023-2028) will be published in May 2023. Our Wrexham, Our Future forms a key part of our well-being assessment, and will directly influence the content of our plan.

By completing this short survey, you will help us to better understand how to enhance the economic, social, environmental and cultural well being of the area: from growing new businesses to protecting the environment, and from tackling poverty and loneliness to building a sense of community and pride across the region. It will set the foundations for how we can work together in the future, collectively overcoming the challenges and taking the opportunities, which matter most to each of us.
