The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 requires that local authorities and local health boards must jointly carry out a population needs assessment (PNA) of the needs for care and support, and the support needs of carers in the local authority areas.  Care and support is in relation to people known to social services and those supported through preventative services.  The PNA consists of two sections:

  • Assessing the extent to which there are people or their carers who need care and support and the extent to which they need support
  • Assessing the range and level of services required for the care and support needs of the population, their carers, to prevent needs arising and escalating, and the actions required to provide services in Welsh

The first population assessment was published in April 2017.  The RPB subsequently published a regional joint action plan in April 2018 setting out how the priorities identified in the PNA were to be addressed. The benefits expected are more opportunities for regional working, joint commissioning and maximising of resources.
