Inquiry into public services boards

In 2017 the Equality, Local Government and Communities Committee agreed to undertake an inquiry into public service boards and the developing of well–being plans in Wales, as part of its work on poverty in Wales. The terms of reference for were:


  • examine how public service boards (PSBs) are targeting improvements to public services in Wales’s most deprived communities;
  • assess the quality of evidence used by PSBs in the development of their local Well-Being Plans in relation to the needs and experiences of people living in poverty, including how PSBs are approaching the impending demise of Communities First;
  • consider how PSBs are specifically addressing rural poverty as part of the development of their Well-Being plans
  • explore and understand the experiences of organisations (public, private and third-sector) and individuals in the development of well-being plans and the potential impact of greater regional working in the future.


The Committee consulted on this topic. The responses have been published.


In March 2018, the Committee agreed to revise its terms of reference and focus on public service boards.


The terms of reference are:

  • To gain an understanding of the structure and functions of the Public Services Boards.
  • To explore the effectiveness of PSBs, resourcing and capacity.
  • To gather evidence of issues or barriers that may impact on effective working, and examples of good practice and innovation.
