SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend


Key public sector organisations in Powys have joined forces to deliver services under a major initiative called ‘One Powys Yn Un’.
The Powys Local Service Board is leading the initiative which is made up of the chief executives of the key public services in the county including Powys County Council, Dyfed Powys Police, Powys Teaching Health Board and Powys Association of Voluntary Organisations (PAVO).
The One Powys Plan has been drafted and is a single plan for public services in Powys. It will replace a range of existing strategies and plans such as the Children and Young People’s Plan, Health, Social Care and Wellbeing and the Community Safety Plan.
The One Powys Plan looks at how public services will achieve 10 key outcomes for the people of Powys: -
People in Powys live in supportive, sharing and self-reliant communities
People in Powys benefit from a thriving diverse economy
People in Powys have the skills to pursue their ambitions
Powys families are safe and supportive places in which to live
People in Powys are healthy and independent
People in Powys live in good quality affordable homes
People in Powys enjoy a clean, safe and green environment
People in Powys feel and are safe and confident
People in Powys are supported to get out of poverty
People in Powys can easily access the services they need
Chair of the Local Service Board, Councillor Michael Jones said: “The aim of the One Powys Plan is to avoid duplication, better identify gaps that need attention and to ensure that the people of Powys receive the best possible services and value for the Powys pound.
"Pulling all of the information and priorities from across the organisations together is not a simple process but we believe the improvements of more efficient and better integrated services for the people of Powys will be worthwhile. We are now keen to gather as many views from residents on the Plan before it is finalised.”
A draft of the first One Powys Plan is now available and consultations are taking place across the county with residents including housing tenants, citizen panel members and Powys Youth Forum.
If you would like to be involved you can find out more at Copies of the Plan along with freepost response cards will also be available in your local library and GP surgery. The consultation runs until Friday 26th August 2011 and once analysed a final version of the plan will be sent to the Welsh Government.
