We’re back having taken a short break to refocus the Keep Wales Safe and Help Us Help You campaigns. The next few weeks are vital for us to stay at alert level zero, to keep Wales safe and open through the autumn and winter, given the rise in Coronavirus cases across the country.

From today (15th November) in Wales we will all need to show our vaccination status or recent negative lateral flow result to get into cinemas, concert halls, theatres, nightclubs and large events.

We have attached some static images highlighting this important update and also included a video below:

We have also included some suggested copy to accompany these materials below and would be extremely grateful if you could share via your available communication channels, using the hashtag #KeepWalesSafe

Mae Iechyd Cyhoeddus Cymru wedi cyhoeddi cyfres o ffeithluniau sy'n tynnu sylw at bwysigrwydd effaith newid yn yr hinsawdd ar iechyd a llesiant poblogaeth Cymru, ac i gefnogi cyrff cyhoeddus a busnesau i gymryd camau i fynd i'r afael ag unrhyw effeithiau.

Wedi'i lansio i gyd-fynd â Chynhadledd y Partïon 26 (COP26), mae'r ffeithluniau'n canolbwyntio ar y berthynas rhwng yr amgylchedd naturiol ac iechyd, y grwpiau poblogaeth yr effeithir arnynt a rhai o effeithiau allweddol iechyd a llesiant newid yn yr hinsawdd a'r grwpiau poblogaeth hynny y gellid effeithio arnynt.

Mae Iechyd Cyhoeddus Cymru wedi ymrwymo yn ei gynllun hirdymor i weithio gyda'n partneriaid i baratoi ar gyfer effaith ddisgwyliedig ac annisgwyl newid yn yr hinsawdd yng Nghymru ac ymateb i hyn. Fel rhan o’n cyfraniad, mae'r Uned Gymorth Asesu Effaith ar Iechyd (WHIASU) wedi bod yn gweithio gydag asiantaethau partner gan gynnwys Cyfoeth Naturiol Cymru, Adfywio Cymru a Llywodraeth Cymru, ar Asesiad o'r Effaith ar Iechyd (HIA) Newid yn yr Hinsawdd yng Nghymru. Mae'r ffeithluniau'n rhan o'r gwaith hwn sy'n mynd rhagddo a'i nod yw sicrhau bod gan sefydliadau a Chyrff Cyhoeddus yng Nghymru y dystiolaeth a'r wybodaeth sydd eu hangen arnynt i gynllunio ar gyfer yr effeithiau iechyd a llesiant ar bobl a chymunedau a ddaw yn sgil newid yn yr hinsawdd ac ymateb hyn.

Gellir eu lawrlwytho yma ynghyd â'r cyfeiriadau a ddefnyddiwyd i greu'r ffeithluniau.

English Version

Public Health Wales has published a series of infographics highlighting the importance of climate change impacts on the health and wellbeing of the population of Wales, and to support public bodies and businesses to take action to address any impacts.

Launched to coincide with the Council of Parties 26 (COP26), the infographics focus on the relationships between the natural environment and health, the population groups affected and some of the key health and wellbeing impacts of climate change and those population groups who could be affected.

Public Health Wales (PHW) has committed in its long term plan to work with our partners to prepare for, and respond, to the expected and unexpected impact of climate change in Wales. As part of our contribution, the Wales Health Impact Assessment Support Unit (WHIASU) has been working with partner agencies including Natural Resources Wales, Renew Wales and Welsh Government, on a Health Impact Assessment (HIA) of Climate Change in Wales.

The infographics are part of this work which is ongoing and aims to ensure that organisations and Public Bodies in Wales have the evidence and information they need to plan for and respond to the health and wellbeing impacts on people and communities that climate change will bring.

The infographics can be downloaded here along with the references used to create the infographics.

Annual Ask Cardiff Survey,

The survey tries to capture residents views on many services that the council provides and also allows resident to leave any positive / negative feedback / comments / suggestions. 

The links to the survey are below:

English - https://wh1.snapsurveys.com/s.asp?k=163595852595

Welsh - https://wh1.snapsurveys.com/s.asp?k=163595914220

Cardiff residents will continue to receive monthly garden waste collections from September 7

Residents in Cardiff will continue to receive monthly garden waste collections from September 7th.  Residents are advised to check the council website - www.cardiff.gov.uk/gardenwaste - or the Cardiff Gov app, to find out when their garden waste is going to be collected in each area of the city.

As well as the monthly kerbside garden waste collections, garden waste can continue to be brought to our recycling centres at Lamby Way and Bessemer Close, by booking a slot through the council’s website - www.cardiff.gov.uk/recyclingcentres.

The additional provision for residents to bring their garden waste to the recycling centres will also continue until further notice, and includes:

  • Increasing the annual allowance for visits to 30 per household rather than 26
  • Increasing the available slots per day from 400 to 570 (up 42.5%);
  • Allowing households to make a booking, and visit on the same day where slots are available
  • Allowing households to visit up to 3 times per day (this is currently limited to 1) and:
  • Increasing our opening times, with last available slots for drop offs at 5.30pm.

These arrangements are in place for all those visiting the recycling centres by car and residents are advised that they need to bring their booking confirmation, along with proof that they are a Cardiff resident, such as a driving licence, and present it to staff on arrival at the site.

Given that Covid cases in Wales are once again on the rise we will continue to monitor the situation and will advise residents of any changes to collection schedules in due course.
