The views of Ceredigion residents are being sought to revise the Strategic Equality Plan for 2020-24. Public services in mid and west Wales are working with Ceredigion County Council to ask residents to give their opinions. The survey is available on the council website and will run until 14 June 2019.
The plan sets out how public organisations will make sure their actions are fair to everyone.
The survey is looking for opinions on how people from different backgrounds experience the following six major areas of life: -
• Living Standards
• Justice and Personal Security
Councillor Ellen ap Gwynn is the Leader of Ceredigion County Council and is the council’s Equalities Champion. She said, “The council remains committed to ensuring that everyone within the county is treated with respect and fairness and that their individual circumstances are not a barrier to them receiving the services they need. Don’t miss this opportunity to share your views with us to influence our new Strategic Equality Plan for 2020-24.”
Many other organisations are working with Ceredigion County Council on the Equality Plan. They include Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Powys county councils. Dyfed Powys Police, Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service, Hywel Dda University Health Board, Powys Teaching Health Board, Brecon Beacons National Park Authority and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority are also working on the Equality Plan.
Results of the survey and the new Strategic Equality Plan will be published on the council’s website.
