The Vale of Glamorgan Public Services Board published its first Well-being Assessment in April 2017. The Assessment provided the PSB with an extensive evidence base from which to develop its priorities set out in the PSB's Well-being Plan.
To build on the learning of the Assessment, and to keep track of key changes in the Vale, the PSB has developed an online Evidence Base. The Evidence Base will enable decisions to be made using data and learning which is as live as possible. Data is presented against four key themes:
