Policy Forum for Wales

Conferences that are scheduled to take place before September will be conducted online.
The format will mirror physical conferences organised by the Forum with speakers presenting via webcam, accompanied by slides if they wish.
The conferences will be chaired and there will be opportunities for delegate questions and comments.
We will be contacting all participants in advance of each conference with full information and guidance on how to take part.
There will be some exceptions where conferences will be postponed, for instance those that would largely involve key stakeholders in the NHS or emergency services.
All participants affected by this will be informed as soon as possible.

Delivering Local Well-Being Plans - community engagement, innovation in service design and case studies in good practice

July 2019

This conference was timed to coincide with and review the first annual reports from the Public Service Boards (PSBs) and reflect on the progress that has been made on the implementation of their individual local well-being plans.

Delegates discussed wider issues for policy and local practice designed to improve economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being across Wales and will assess progress on achieving the aims set out in the 2015 Well-being of Future Generations Act.

Sessions focussed on how the PSB model and the implementation of the 19 local well-being plans are progressing, examining what is currently working, where improvements are still needed, and how experiences so far might affect the future direction of policy and development of well-being plans and public policy more widely.

Delegates heard examples of innovative practice they are implementing in each of their respective fields - across healthcare, culture, the environment and integrated public services - and was an opportunity to discuss how lessons can be learnt from their experiences and might be applied more widely across Wales.

Shortly after every Policy Forum for Wales seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
