Today I am publishing the Welsh Government’s well-being objectives, which set out how we will use the Well-being of Future Generations Act to help deliver our programme for government, Taking Wales Forward, and maximise our contribution to the seven shared national well-being goals.


The well-being objectives will provide a bridge between Taking Wales Forward and the development of four cross-cutting national strategies; Prosperous and Secure, Healthy and Active, Ambitious and Learning and, United and Connected. These four strategies will allow us to use the levers available to us to greatest effect, to ensure that public services deliver the best possible outcomes for people in Wales and our economy continues to grow, delivering jobs and prosperity for all. The well-being objectives will be tested further through the development of the strategies and will engage businesses, public bodies, people and communities in this important work.
