Policy Forum for Wales seminars present an opportunity to engage with key policymakers and other interested parties, and are CPD certified (more details). Typically, attendees at our seminars are a senior and informed group numbering 120, including Members of the National Assembly for Wales and senior officials from the Welsh Government, commissioners, regulators and other agencies, representatives of trade unions and public service boards, local government, local health boards, schools, charities, social care, health professionals, specialist academics, businesses and housing associations, together with reporters from the national and trade press based in Wales and elsewhere.

Output and About Us

A key output of the seminar will be a transcript of the proceedings, sent out around 12 working days after the event to all attendees and a wider group of Ministers and officials in the Wales Office and Welsh Government departments affected by the issues; as well as Assembly Members with a special interest in the subject. It will also be made available more widely. This document will include transcripts of all speeches and questions and answers sessions from the day, along with access to PowerPoint presentations, speakers’ biographies, an attendee list, an agenda, sponsor information, as well as any subsequent press coverage of the day and any articles or comment pieces submitted by delegates. It is made available subject to strict restrictions on public use, and is intended to provide timely information for interested parties who are unable to attend on the day.

All delegates will receive complimentary PDF copies and are invited to contribute to the content.

The Policy Forum for Wales is strictly impartial and cross-party. The Forum has no policy agenda of its own.
