The Programme for Government is our plan of action. It represents a real commitment to delivery, measured by the impact government is actually having on people’s lives. In May 2011, shortly after voting overwhelmingly for greater powers in a national referendum, the people of Wales elected a Welsh Government with renewed ambition for our country.
Our manifesto set out the difference we want to make to the lives of people in Wales: healthy people living productive lives in a more prosperous and innovative economy; safer and more cohesive communities, with lower levels of poverty and greater equality, a resilient environment with more sustainable use of our natural resources and a society with a vital sense of its own culture and heritage. Our aim is to support the delivery of effective and efficient public services that meet the needs of people in Wales. The key actions in our programme to deliver this are: Strengthening local democracy; Supporting continuous improvement in our public services; Ensuring that our funding supports stronger and more effective service delivery; Securing effective collaboration between public services. Our aim is to help everyone reach their potential, reduce inequality, and improve economic and social well-being.
