Community strategies are intended to bring together all those who can contribute to the future of communities within a local authority area.
The purpose of Local Services Boards (LSBs) is to deliver benefits for citizens through strengthening joint working across all public services in Wales.


  • improve the quality of life and joined-up service delivery for citizens in their areas
  • provide the leadership to ensure that difficult issues across public services are confidently managed not avoided or ignored
  • stimulate integration, co-ordination and co-operation between local, regional and national public sector organisations
  • set an example of innovative, citizen-focused leadership at the heart of the local partnership and delivery system
  • ensure an effective whole system response to the needs of citizens by pooling resources
  • "unblock blockages" by removing bureaucracy or other obstacles.
