Welsh Labour’s Communities Secretary Carl Sargeant is urging people across Wales to get involved in developing the Welsh Government’s new approach to building resilient communities.
Earlier this month, the Cabinet Secretary announced that he was minded to phase out the Communities First programme while establishing a new approach focusing on three priority areas of employment, early years and empowerment and his intention to engage with communities to look afresh at how the Welsh Government can support them.
An online questionnaire has now been launched to seek the views of people across Wales. As well as asking for views on how the Welsh Government’s priorities can support greater prosperity and resilience, views are also being sought on Communities First.
The online questionnaire is the first step in a more comprehensive engagement process which will also include public events, meetings with communities groups and work with those delivering services.
The questionnaire can be found at: www.gov.wales/talkcommunities.
