Alun Davies, Cabinet Secretary for Local Government and Public Services
The Welsh Government is fundamentally committed to ensuring public services deliver the highest standards to the people of Wales. As we move towards leaving the European Union public bodies will need to think carefully about how they respond to emerging changes and continue to deliver vital services to our communities.
To support this, the Welsh Government’s £50million European Transition Fund (ETF) was announced in January to help organisations across Wales prepare for the impact of leaving the European Union.
Today I am announcing the success of the Welsh Local Government Association’s (WLGA) bid for funding under the ETF totalling £150k.
This money will support the WLGA in delivering a European Transition support package to all 22 local authorities across Wales, helping them to build resilience and take a focused approach towards leaving the European Union.
