  • PAM GuidanceWe have recently published the 2018-19 Public Accountability Measures (PAMs) guidance.

    This dataset has been developed by the Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) led Task and Finish group, in consultation with local authorities, and seeks to provide a clear and simple overview of local government performance.

    The guidance includes detailed definitions for each measure, including comprehensive guidance for those measures we will collect directly from local authorities. We have also included information about how each of the PAMs may help local authorities demonstrate how they are contributing to the seven well-being goals.

    Enquiries relating to the PAMs or the guidance should be sent to pienquiries@data.cymru

    We are pleased to have supported the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) in developing its new online Data Hub. Its launch marks an important first step in bringing together evidence about the sector in Wales in a single, dynamic resource. The Hub was launched at the WCVA’s gofod3 event on 8 March. The Data Hub, which is unique to the UK, puts the third sector under the microscope, revealing heroic efforts of charities, social enterprises and other bodies to deliver significant benefits, often to the most vulnerable. We look forward to continuing to work with WCVA to develop the Hub further.

    To access the Hub please visit the WCVAs website.
