North Wales has been split into 14 ‘localities’. A locality population is between about 30,000 and 50,000 people. This is felt to be the ideal population size for health, social care and community services to work together effectively to support residents.

Each locality will look at how community based services can work together to respond to the needs of residents. They are led by a locality team which includes amongst others, a local GP, social services and the voluntary sector as well as representatives from physiotherapy, children and mental health.

In Gwynedd, there are three areas, Arfon, Dwyfor and Meirionnydd, where these teams meet on a regular basis.
The main role of the Health & Social Care Facilitator at these meetings is to ensure Third Sector perspective in discussions and local initiatives. A report will be presented on new developments or services being provided by third sector organisations in these areas.

The Facilitator is also a member of the following strategic groups:

  • North Wales Carers Strategic Group (BCU Health Board)
  • Workforce Development Partnership (Gwynedd Local Authority)
  • Carers Partnership Board (Gwynedd & Ynys Môn Local Authority)
  • Safeguarding Adults Delivery Group (Gwynedd & Ynys Môn Local Authority)
  • Supporting People Programme (Gwynedd Local Authority)

The H&SC Facilitator is also involved with numerous other initiatives and developments within the health, care and wellbeing agenda.
