Strategic Equality Plan and Equality Objectives 2016–2020, 19/12/16 [W]


The Welsh Government has published their revised Strategic Equality Plan and Equality Objectives for the coming four years.

Equality is enshrined in the legislation through the Government of Wales Acts 1998 and 2006. The Equality Objectives set out in this Plan apply across government departments with the aim of ensuring that this is a priority for all policy makers.

The Objectives embody the commitment of all Ministers to tackle barriers to equality and inclusion:

  • Objective 1 – Design and delivery of public services
  • Objective 2 – Advice, information and advocacy
  • Objective 3 – Employment, skills and pay
  • Objective 4 – Reducing harassment and abuse
  • Objective 5 – Engagement and participation in decision-making
  • Objective 6 – Strengthening community cohesion
  • Objective 7 – Reducing poverty and improving living conditions
  • Objective 8 – Welsh Government as an exemplar employer
