The role of scrutiny in relation to the WFG Act
In partnership with the WLGA, Welsh Government, Welsh NHS Confederation, the Office of the Future Generations Commissioner and Good Practice Wales we held a free event with the aim of considering Governance under the Well-being of Future Generations Act.
This event formed part of our ongoing programme focusing on different elements of governance. Previous events include:
- Scrutiny in the Spotlight
- Mirror, Mirror on the Wall... Reflecting on good governance
- The future of governance: Effective decision making for current and future generations
- Governance: Supporting improvement across complex public service delivery
The focus of this seminar was on the implications of the WFG Act for scrutiny and non-executive functions and the role that this played in the overall governance framework of public bodies. This seminar was 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 would 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.

- Chairs and vice-chairs of scrutiny and audit committees;
