The Partnership brings together the three local authorities in West Wales (Carmarthenshire County Council, Ceredigion Council and Pembrokeshire County Council), Hywel Dda University Health Board and representatives of the third and independent sector. A Regional Partnership Board has been established to meet the requirements of the Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Act 2014. Users of care and support services also sit on the Board, along with a carer representative.
