The Regional Health, Social Care and Wellbeing (HSCWB) network was created to establish and increase dialogue between the Third Sector in Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Bridgend and the Abertawe Bro-Morgannwg University (ABMU) Health Board.

The vision is to improve the health and wellbeing outcomes for people living in the ABMU 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) and Bridgend Association for Voluntary Organisations (BAVO).

Role and Purpose
