Is Wales Fairer? 2018, 25/10/2018 [W]

05.11.18

The Equality and Human Rights Commission has published ‘Is Wales Fairer?’, examining equality and human rights in Wales.

The report examines current progress and change in equality and human rights in Wales since the last report in 2015. It examines outcomes in education, health, living standards, justice and security, work and participation in politics and public life.

The report finds progress in fewer young people who are not in education, employment or training, and narrowing gaps for certain groups in early years education.

It also notes serious challenges, however. Poverty has caused a stark gap in the experiences and opportunities to people born into different backgrounds. The gap has widened especially for women, disabled people and some ethnic minority groups. High levels of racism and violence against women have been seen across Wales.

The report makes a number of recommendations to address these challenges, and you can read them in the full report on the Equality and Human Rights Commission website here.
