Wrexham Partners Equality Objectives 2016-2020

Why are we doing this?: 

Equality is about creating a fairer society where diversity is valued and respected, where people do not face discrimination and prejudice and where everyone can pariticpate, flourish and have the opportunity to fulfill their potential.

Under the Equality Act 2010 Wrexham County Borough Council and its partners, AVOW, North Wales Fire & Rescue, Coleg Cambria, Glyndwr University and North Wales Police have a Public Sector Equality Duty to:


  • Eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimnisation and any other sonduct that it prohibited under the Act;
  • Advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a protected characteristic and those who do not; and
  • Foster good relations between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and those who do not.

The purpose of this consultation exercise is part of meeting the requirement under those duties to review and refresh our Equality Objectives within the Strategic Equality Plans 2016-2020; and to engage with protected characteristics groups in doing so.

Rather than each organisation conducting an individual consultation, in doing it together we aim to eliminate consultation fatigue and get a more overall Wrexham picture.

What do we want to know?: Wrexham County Borough Council and its public and third sector partners want to engage through this consultation on what are the greatest barriers facing those with protected characteristics in Wrexham and what should be our Equality Objectives for the next Strategic Equality Plans 2016-2020.   
Consultation start date 01 September 2015
Consultation end date 09 October 2015
