Future Generations Briefing Event
Eurgain Powell, Policy Advisor at the Office of the Future Generations Commissioner for Wales, will provide detailed information about how the Act applies to housing in Wales and its impact on equality.
This is a great opportunity for you to learn how you can apply the principles of the Act to your own work and help support your tenants in the long term.
At Tai Pawb, we placed the Well-being Goals of the Act at the heart of the design and development of our new strategic plan to ensure our ambitions and long term policy and influencing activities were in line with the new duties and responsibilities placed on public bodies and Welsh Government.
We want to support the Welsh housing sector to embrace the sentiment summed up perfectly by the Future Generations Commissioner, Sophie Howe, in her blog post ‘Home is where well-being begins’ (2017) where she states:
The health effects of poor housing disproportionately affect vulnerable people: older people living isolated lives, young adults with disabilities and those without support networks.
The purpose of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 is to facilitate improved decision making by public bodies in respect of the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of Wales. Five key ways of working have been introduced to ensure public bodies work together to take account of the long-term, work to prevent problems occurring or getting worse, take an integrated and collaborative approach, and consider and involve people.
The Act places a legal requirement on Welsh Government, local government, local health boards and other specified public bodies to conduct assessments upon which objectives must be set to address seven well-being goals to make Wales a prosperous, resilient, healthier, more equal and globally responsible country with cohesive communities, a vibrant culture and a thriving Welsh language.
Together, the seven well-being goals and five ways of working provided by the Act are designed to support and deliver a public service that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
