Wellbeing of Future Generations Act 2015
The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act is about improving the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of Wales. It requires organisations in Wales to think about the long-term impact of their decisions, to work better with people, communities and each other, and to prevent persistent problems such as poverty, health inequalities and climate change.
We’re keen to encourage schools to think about not just the community in which they support, but also how their work aligns with and complements the services and activities of other groups and organisations both voluntary and statutory. We’d like you to think about how your school can work together with others to add value, working in partnership rather than in competition. In your application, please explain your plans for the future as well as for the present, we would like to see how schools are thinking about the long-term impact of their decision making to work with and alongside others.
