The Wales Animal Health and Welfare Framework is our plan for improving animal health & welfare standards for kept animals.

The Framework also considers the contribution to protecting public health, the economy and the environment.

The Framework has succeeded the Great Britain Animal Health and Welfare Strategy in Wales.

The Framework builds on the progress made in Wales to raise standards of animal health and welfare by;

  • using an approach focussed on delivery to achieve shared outcomes
  • working in partnership to develop a robust monitoring and evaluation framework, underpinned by a strong evidence base.

The Framework was launched at the Royal Welsh Show 2014. Please click on the link below to read the document.

As part of the launch of the Framework, the Wales Animal Health and Welfare Framework Group held a Question and Answer session.
