The Wales Social Partners Unit (WSPU) was established by business representative organizations and the Wales TUC to provide:
- A monitoring and information service providing summaries of the activities of the Welsh Government and the National Assembly for Wales relevant to the social partners.
- Advice to Welsh Government policy divisions and other public sector organizations on how best to consult with and involve social partners in policy development and implementation
WSPU is a company limited by guarantee. The funding for WSPU's activities is provided by a Welsh Government contract procured on a commercial basis.
