Our responsibility for health and wellbeing in Cardiff

Well-being is everyone’s right and everyone’s responsibility. Cardiff Council is responsible for supporting and protecting the health and well-being of its residents. We want people in our city to live longer and be happier. 

Well-being can be defined in relation to the different areas of a person’s life, such as:
 
  • Physical and mental health and emotional well-being 
  • Protection from abuse and neglect
  • Education, training and recreation
  • Domestic, family and personal relationships 
  • Contribution made to society 
  • Securing rights and entitlements 
  • Social and economic well-being 
  • Suitability of living accommodation 

Social Service​s and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014


As a local authority we have a duty to provide our residents with:

 
  • Helpful information and advice, and 
  • Suitable assistance as and when necessary. 
 

As well as improving access to information and advice it is about empowering residents to take control of their own health and well-being.


And where residents need further assistance, we must actively involve them in the design of support plans and the delivery of care services.
