Acting today for a better tomorrow

The Well-being of Future Generations Act is helping to future-proof the health of the next generation by focusing on social, cultural, environmental, and economic well-being.

The Act has contributed to a new 10-year national strategy for healthcare, focusing on preventative measures and a long-term vision of keeping people well, not just treating illness.

The Act recognises wider factors which affect our health like poverty, housing, employment, environment, and education and following calls from the Commissioner, the government is piloting a basic income tackling poverty as a root cause of poor health.
