We are committed to the principles of fairness and equality both in service delivery and employment to ensure everyone can take a full active part in society.
The most recent census, which is conducted every ten years by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), was on 21 March 2021 for England and Wales.
We want to create a community for all people, who live in, work in and visit Flintshire in which difference is valued and harassment and discrimination is not tolerated.
We use the Equality Impact Assessment process to ensure that departments consider the effects on equality when making decisions.
Safeguarding includes everything a Council can do to keep people safe, including minimising the risk of harm and accidents, taking action to tackle safety concerns and ensuring people grow up and live in safe circumstances.
This plan sets out our equality objectives and action plans for making Flintshire a fairer place where people can achieve their potential, thrive and prosper.
We have a set of shared Equality Objectives across North Wales, and every four years we review and change them if necessary. It is now time for us to think about our Equality Objectives for 2024-28.
