Welsh Government Priorities

Programme for government 2021 to 2026.

Our government programme sets out the ambitious and radical commitments we will deliver over the next 5 years in order to tackle the challenges that we face and improve the lives of people across Wales. It is founded on the distinctively Welsh values of community, equality and social justice. Furthermore, it puts collaboration ahead of the competition, showing how we will act to maximise fairness for all and eliminate inequality at every level of society. People in Wales look after each other, and this programme is built on exactly that principle.

The Programme for Government also sets out 10 well-being objectives that align directly to the 10 headings from our manifesto. These objectives ensure people in Wales will see the policy agenda they voted for delivered in practice. Furthermore, they intend to maximise the government’s contribution to achieving each of the well-being goals.
