Finance for the Future 2021 Conference – public services in a time of crisis
On 16 December 2021, the Finance Skills Development Group held their 5th Finance for the Future conference, exploring the theme of Public Services in a Time of Crisis.
Process that led to a departure payment to the Chief Executive of Pembrokeshire County Council represented a serious breakdown in governance
The Council has taken action to improve its governance and decision making though much work is still needed
We’re looking for three new directors to join our teams
Are you passionate about driving change in the public sector?
Current arrangements for commissioning older people’s care-home placements are failing to address some long-standing issues
Specific challenges relate to funding regimes which are overly complex and cause division amongst partners, and an overall system which is difficult to navigate.

We’re here to:

Assure
the people of Wales that public money is being managed well.
Explain
how public money is being used and how it meets people’s needs.
Inspire
and empower the Welsh public sector to improve.
