Strategic equality plan

In line with the Equality Act 2010 and public sector equality duty for Wales, all public authorities must produce a strategic equality plan containing set equality objectives.

The City and County of Swansea's strategic equality plan (initially for the period 2012-2016) was formally adopted by the council on 15 March 2012 and sets out how we will build on our previous equality and diversity scheme and our arrangements for meeting the new legislative duties.

Our equality objectives (included within the plan) are based on information from local, regional and national sources and highlight areas of inequality in service provision, service take up or attainment for or by specific groups with protected characteristics as defined in the Equality Act.

These characteristics are:

  • age
  • disability
  • gender re-assignment
  • marriage and civil partnership
  • pregnancy and maternity
  • race
  • religion or belief (including non-belief)
  • sex
  • sexual orientation

Each equality objective contains actions to achieve specific, measurable outcomes to reduce inequalities. across all of the protected characteristics.
