The Regional Health, Social Care and Wellbeing (HSCWB) network exists to ensure strong communication between the Third Sector in Swansea and Neath Port Talbot and Swansea Bay University Health Board (SBUHB), and more recently, the West Glamorgan Regional Programme Team.

The vision is to improve the health and wellbeing outcomes for people living in the SBU Health Board area; reducing health inequalities, promoting social wellbeing within communities, preventing ill-health, aiding recovery and independence.

The Network meets four times a year and is supported by the Health, Social Care & Wellbeing Facilitators based at Neath Port Talbot Council for Voluntary Service (NPTCVS), Swansea Council for Voluntary Service (SCVS).

Role and Purpose

  • Work in close partnership with the Health Board and Regional Team to encourage and reflect the diversity of the locality and support positive action and representation of patients, carers and service users.

Opportunities for Third Sector Representatives across Health Board and West Glamorgan Regional activities are advertised and nominated via the Network. This includes the Health Board’s Stakeholder Reference Group, West Glamorgan Regional Partnership Board and Transformation Boards.

  • Provide an environment and support for the exchange of information and ideas between Third Sector organisations in the area.
  • Provide opportunities for partners working in the health and social care field to access third sector feedback on issues and new projects and initiatives.
  • Promote opportunities for patient and citizen engagement, participation and involvement.
  • Provide updates and feedback for the Health Board Non Officer Member, Third Sector in order for them to reflect the views of the sector at Board meetings.
