In partnership with the WLGA, Welsh Government, Welsh NHS Confederation, the Office of the Future Generations Commissioner and Good Practice Wales we are holding a free event with the aim of considering Governance under the Well-being of Future Generations Act. 

This event forms part of our ongoing programme focusing on different elements of governance. Previous events include:

The focus of this forthcoming seminar will be on the implications of the WFG Act for scrutiny and non-executive functions and the role that this plays in the overall governance framework of public bodies. This seminar is aimed at key groups of officers and members from across the 44 bodies that come under the Act and members/ non execs with direct responsibility for scrutinising executive functions.

Walking away from this seminar, delegates will have gained an understanding of the implications of the WFG Act for those that scrutinise public services, particularly in relation to the five ways of working.
