Facing Financial Challenges: Planning for Unchartered Territory

We held a free webinar on Facing Financial Challenges: Planning for unchartered territory.

The Welsh public landscape is changing, fact! Public services are facing significant financial challenges and must ensure standards of services are maintained.

So, what does this mean for managing the deficit reduction plan and delivering key services in the public sector? The need to balance budgets, facilitate innovation and change is paramount, and the journey is about to get harder.
