The Group provides advice, support and challenge to improve equality considerations of our budget process.

It was established in December 2012 following a commitment in the Draft Budget 2013-14.

What is discussed?

Meetings to date have focused on providing information to the members on how the Budget process works and on approaches being taken to deliver our objectives, policies and programmes. These include the Well-being of Future Generations Act, the tackling poverty action plan, the Wales Infrastructure Investment Plan, housing policy, and the Foundation Phase Evaluation.
