“We don’t have to, but we want to!” RCE Cymru Sharing Their Knowledge with Public Services

Universities in Wales don’t fall under the remit of the Well-being of Future Generations (WFG) Act, so why are they forming a network to research and share their knowledge, helping public services work towards the WFG goals?

GSWAG: A Collaborative Partnership

Partnership working is the way forward for public service delivery. Partnership is hard work, we know that. But the benefits to public services are huge. We recently got to hear about Gwent Strategic Wellbeing Assessment Group’s (“GSWAG”) approach, so we went along to one of their meetings. We heard how they are working in partnership to achieve more by learning from each other, by collaborating on the same agenda items. They’re working under the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act, putting some of the five ways of working in practice. They’re… Read more GSWAG: A Collaborative Partnership
