Carl Sargeant AM

November 9th 2017

The Bevan Foundation is deeply saddened at the death of Carl Sargeant AM.

The Bevan Foundation is deeply saddened at the death of Carl Sargeant AM.  Many of the staff and trustees had the privilege of working with him over the years, and his passing away has shocked us all.

Carl leaves an extraordinary legislative legacy, from the Housing (Wales) Act which its ground-breaking change in action to homeless, to the Violence against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Act and of course the Well-being of Future Generations Act.   And across Wales, town centres and communities have changed thanks to his Vibrant and Viable Places progamme and, despite his decision to wind it down, Communities First.  Carl’s legacy reflects his commitment to making a difference to the lives of ordinary people.

Far too early, we pay tribute to a fine politician  and offer our sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.
