The Welsh Government is the devolved Government for Wales. It is working to help improve the lives of people in Wales and make our nation a better place in which to live and work.
The Welsh Government consists of:
- The First Minister
- Welsh Ministers
- The Counsel General
- Deputy Ministers.
They are supported by civil servants who work across devolved areas that include key areas of public life such as health, education and the environment. It aims to be open and responsive to the needs of citizens and communities and is one of the few governments in the world that publishes Cabinet minutes and papers. Responsibility for most key areas of public life including health, education and environment is devolved. With offices across Wales, including Merthyr Tydfil, Aberystwyth and Llandudno Junction, it is getting closer to the people it serves.

It will also take up consumers’ complaints if they have tried and failed to resolve issues with their water companies.
