We can make this work - the Third Sector and the WFG Act

Feb 28th 10:30am - 3:30pm the Forestry Hub Machynlleth

The Well-being of Future Generations Act requires a fundamental change in the way our public bodies work. With Welsh Government heralding a joined-up approach across all public bodies and sectors, it is a chance for us to help them meet their goals.

How does your group or organisation contribute to the seven goals of well-being, and how can you show this to the people that count?

A free one day workshop at the Forestry Hub Machynlleth, looking at what you do and how it fits with the WFG Act. With presenters from WCVA, examples of successful collaborations, and workshop sessions this is a valuable opportunity to ensure you are WFG Act ready.

Lunch and refreshments included.

Contact Maria Wilding (maria.wilding@llaisygoedwig.org.uk, or 07981138620) to book a place.

The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act is about improving the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of Wales. It will make the public bodies listed in the Act think more about the long-term, work better with people and communities and each other, look to prevent problems and take a more joined-up approach.

To make sure we are all working towards the same vision, the Act puts in place seven well-being goals:

  • A prosperous Wales
  • A resilient Wales
  • A healthier Wales
  • A more equal Wales
  • A Wales of cohesive communities
  • A Wales of vibrant culture and thriving Welsh Language
  • A globally responsible Wales

The five ways of working:

Long Term - The importance of balancing short-term needs with the need to safeguard the ability to also meet long-term needs.

Prevention - How acting to prevent problems occurring or getting worse may help public bodies meet their objectives.

Integration - Considering how the public body's well-being objectives may impact upon each of the well-being goals, on their other objectives, or on the objectives of other public bodies.

Collaboration - Acting in collaboration with any other person (or different parts of the body itself) that could help the body to meet its well-being objectives.

Involvement - The importance of involving people with an interest in achieving the well-being goals, and ensuring that those people reflect the diversity of the area which the body serves.
