Views on continued commitment to equality at Pembrokeshire County Council sought
Members of the public are being asked to give their views on the Strategic Equality Plan for the next four years.
The draft plan for 2024-2028 describes how Pembrokeshire County Council aims to continue its commitment to equality and how the Authority will meet legal obligations contained within the Equality Act 2010.
All public bodies have to produce a Strategic Equality Plan setting out how they will ensure services they provide are accessible to all residents and service users irrespective of their age, gender, sexuality, religion or disability.
The plan has been developed following a public engagement exercise that was undertaken jointly with other public service organisation across South West Wales during 2023 and was supplemented by an extensive review of related research and policy documents.
Before the final plan is presented to Cabinet in March, residents are being asked to see if they agree with the priority areas for action identified and make any comments on the draft strategy.
Cllr Guy Woodham, Cabinet Member for Education and Welsh Language, said: “The Strategic Equality Plan has seen a huge amount of good work completed to ensure that the many essential services provided for vulnerable groups and individuals have resulted in improving outcomes for all.
“As an organisation this is at the heart of what we do and we recognise that there is always more to be done. I would encourage everyone to get involved in the consultation and let us know what you think of the priorities action and the wider draft strategy.”
