Healthy People We want the people of Cwm Taf to live long and healthy lives, beginning with getting the best start in life and continuing right through to good health in older age. We are focusing our initial work on the first 1000 days (pregnancy to age 2) and the steps we can all take to positively impact on your health

Strong Economy We know that a large proportion of our workforce live in the area. We need to create a workforce where mental and physical health and well-being are not barriers to employment and employees feel supported to carry out their role.

Tackling Loneliness and Isolation Poor health can often lead to feelings of loneliness and isolation, and make it harder to access the services that would offer support, such as Dewis Cymru.

Libraries and GP Support Officers / social prescribers can offer great advice and signpost to services available locally to you, offering opportunities to meet new people and maybe learn new skills.
