Response to the consultation

Evidence submitted in response to this Consultation

Purpose of the consultation

The Equality, Local Government and Communities Committee undertook an inquiry into local Approaches to poverty reduction: The Well-Being of Future Generations Act and public service boards.

Following the consultation, the Committee agreed to revise its terms of reference and focus on public service boards. The updated terms of reference can be found on the inquiry page.

Terms of reference:

The initial terms of reference were to:

  • examine how public service boards (PSBs) are targeting improvements to public services in Wales’s most deprived communities;
  • assess the quality of evidence used by PSBs in the development of their local Well-Being Plans in relation to the needs and experiences of people living in poverty, including how PSBs are approaching the impending demise of Communities First;
  • consider how PSBs are specifically addressing rural poverty as part of the development of their Well-Being plans
  • explore and understand the experiences of organisations (public, private and third-sector) and individuals in the development of well-being plans and the potential impact of greater regional working in the future.
