The Equality Objectives and Strategic Equality Plan
We want to ensure the way we govern has the most effective impact on making our society fairer and more inclusive.
Making Equalities Work for Wales
The Welsh Government has been engaging with individuals and organisations across Wales to develop our Equality Objectives. We are very grateful for the extensive help, input and support given to us in shaping the Welsh Government’s Equality Objectives.
Our Equality Objectives will help ensure that public services and employment are fair, accessible, responsive to people’s needs, and that communities are inclusive. We want everyone to feel safe out and about and have their chance to flourish at school and in work. People should not be put at a disadvantage by any of the following:
- Faith or belief
- Sexual orientation
- Pregnancy and maternity
- Being married or in a civil partnership
- Being a disabled person
- Being transgender
Our Equality Objectives sit within our Strategic Equality Plan. These objectives will underpin our work, ensuring a joined up approach to achieving better outcomes for the people of Wales. They will be reflected within the Programme for Government and dovetail closely with our Anti-Poverty Action Plan.
Our extensive engagement has confirmed the greatest inequalities we are trying to tackle. This Strategic Equality Plan marks the beginning in many ways, as we start delivering on the Equality Objectives. We will continue the conversation with the people of Wales to make sure that these Objectives achieve the outcomes we want, and make a real difference to people’s lives.
Our Strategic Equality Plan is available in alternative formats and languages. If you would like to request this information in an alternative format please let us know.
