Strategic Equality Plan

The Equality Act 2010 introduces a new general duty on the public sector to replace the previous duties on disability, gender and race.  The general duty requires a public authority to:·

  • Eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct that is prohibited under the Act;
  • Advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it; and
  • Foster good relations between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it.

The protected characteristics are age; disability; gender re-assignment; marriage and civil partnership; pregnancy and maternity; race; religion or belief (including non-belief); sex; sexual orientation.

We have worked with other public bodies across North Wales and worked with local stakeholders to identify objectives. Our objectives are based on the following:-

  • Health
  • Education
  • Employment
  • Personal Safety
  • Representation and Voice
  • Access to information, services and environment

Please refer to our useful documents and websites which set out further information relating to our objectives and Strategic Equality Plan.
