Well-being of Future Generations

The Well-being of Future Generations Act gives us the ambition, permission and legal obligation to improve our social, cultural, environmental and economic well-being.

The Well-being of Future Generations Act requires public bodies in Wales to think about the long-term impact of their decisions, to work better with people, communities and each other, and to prevent persistent problems such as poverty, health inequalities and climate change. Welsh Procurement Alliance is mindful to ensure that the Future Generations Act obligations are embedded into all our activity.

With the Well-being Goals in mind, WPA is committed to providing our clients with competitively tendered Framework Agreements for building works, goods and services and to delivering tangible social value and community benefits that meet local and regional needs. WPA work with our clients and appointed companies to ensure that wherever possible projects delivered using our frameworks leave a social legacy.
