We’re gathering sector views on our contributions to well-being!

Wales has been praised by the UN for leading the way in trying to embed sustainable development into policy and delivery. The Well-being of Future Generations Act is an innovative piece of legislation that aims to transform the way that Wales delivers its public services.

The Act calls for more joined up working, within and between sectors, together with more integration, collaboration, preventative action and thinking for the long term. Although not bound by the Act, the third sector has a role to play in championing these principles through existing projects, alternative service delivery models and collaboration with public bodies. The Act also sets out 7 well-being goals that public bodies must work towards. WCVA has created some factsheets to offer an introduction to each of the goals and their relevance to the sector.

7 goals E

It's important for the sector to start to think about how our activity could - and more than likely already does - contribute towards these seven goals. Cat Miller, Environet Manager explains "As a sector, now is the time to be proactive in thinking about the role that we have to play and how best to demonstrate the impact that we make with our activities. This can help us influence decision makers and build the reputation of the sector. It really is the time to showcase the innovation and ability of the sector to collaborate with other sectors in delivering multiple benefits to the citizens of Wales and beyond."

We would like to invite you to take a look at the sheets we've created and help us to make them as useful as possible.They are still very much in draft form and we need your help as third sector groups and deliverers!  Please email any comments or suggestions to help@wcva.org.uk before March 13 2017. Although the sheets are in English only in their draft form, you are welcome to offer thoughts or comments in English or Welsh and the factsheets will be produced bilingually when complete.
