Our Corporate Plan

We are delighted to introduce our Corporate Plan, which sets out our vision for the future…

We are confident that the Strategic Aims and Improvement and Well-being Objectives contained within this Corporate Plan set out a robust programme of activity for the next year, and recognises the short, medium and longer term needs of the communities we serve. However, current uncertainties make planning for the long term extremely challenging and as such, we will review our Corporate Plan annually to allow us to produce meaningful Strategic Aims and Improvement and Well-being Objectives on a year by year basis.

Our Corporate Plan sets out our vision for the future, and how this will be achieved through our Strategic Aims and Improvement and Well-being Objectives.

In previous years, we have produced a five-year Strategic Plan and an accompanying Annual Improvement Plan. Following the introduction of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015, we took the opportunity to review our planning processes, and as such produced a single integrated Corporate Plan.

Our Annual Performance Assessment also identifies how we have contributed to the Wellbeing goals, set out within the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.
