Carmarthenshire Community Services for Prevention

  • Consultation period: 20/07/2022 ~ 10:00 - 26/08/2022 ~ 12:00

  • Area: Any Ward or Area

Why are we consulting

This consultation seeks the views of everyone with an interest in how community preventative services are commissioned.

We are looking to change the way we commission 3rd sector services by moving to a local area-based community preventative model. The reason for the change is to enable services to reflect the needs of local communities and to build on their strengths and assets.

By changing to an area-based model we aim to make services more diverse and flexible, enhance the quality of support and activities provided by focusing on what is important to local people and what people want to achieve.

We also want to make it simpler and easier for people to access 3rd sector services and to find out what is available in their local area by offering a ‘one stop shop’ community wellbeing hub-type service.

Through this consultation your views will inform the future delivery model of community preventative services (3rd sector services).
