Strategic Equality Plan

Public bodies often talk about equality and fairness but what does the word ‘equality’ mean to residents in Powys? To understand what issues of inequality or discrimination exist, we asked you to complete our short survey.

This survey is now closed

This is a plan which says what we do to ensure people of all ages, genders, religions and cultures are not discriminated against or treated unfairly or differently to anyone else when they access/try to access a service.

Our next plan has to be published by law by April 2016.

View our current plan if you’d like to see what it says before completing the survey. Page 9 in particular may be of interest as it refers to the legislation. 

SEPs are a requirement of the Equality Act 2010.  The Act gives specific protection to people on the basis of their:

  • Race
  • Sex
  • Age
  • Religion and belief
  • Sexual orientation
  • Pregnancy or maternity
  • Disability
  • Gender reassignment
  • Partnership status

The following organisations are reviewing their strategic equality plans (SEPs) and have come together to jointly consult:

Dyfed Powys Police; Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service; Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust; Hywel Dda University Health Board; Powys Teaching Health Board; the local authorities of Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Powys; Pembrokeshire national park; Coleg Sir Gar and other further education colleges.
