The Senedd is set to undergo significant reform.  Find out what the changes might mean for your organisation by joining our new training course. 

After a lot of debate, the Senedd is set to undergo significant reform. The changes include increasing the number of Senedd members, changing how candidates for the Senedd elections are selected, and new arrangements for voting. And while much has been agreed in the Senedd Cymru (Members and Elections) Act, there are still matters to be decided. 

Senedd reform could transform how people and organisations get their voices heard in the Senedd, with more members to engage with and new, multi-member constituencies. Join this exciting new training session so your organisation can think about and plan for the changes ahead.
