Equality

The Isle of Anglesey County Council is opposed to all discrimination and is committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all.

The Equality Act 2010 is about ensuring a fair deal for everyone and focuses on ending discrimination, advancing equality of opportunity and outcome and fostering good relations between different individuals and communities.

The Act replaces previous anti-discrimination laws with a single Act. It simplifies and clarifies the role of Local Authorities as leaders in achieving equality improvements for their citizens and communities.

Who is protected under the Equality Act 2010?

In actual fact, everyone is. The Act sets out a new prescribed list of protected characteristics which replace what have traditionally been referred to as ‘equality Strands’. These groups are protected through the general and specific duties of the Act. The new general duty covers the following protected characteristics:

  • age
  • gender reassignment
  • sex
  • race - including ethnic or national origin, colour or nationality
  • disability
  • pregnancy and maternity
  • sexual orientation
  • religion or belief - including lack of belief

It also applies to marriage and civil partnership, but only in respect of the requirement to have due regard to the need to eliminate discrimination.

We are committed to mainstreaming equality into the work of the authority at all levels by integrating equality considerations within our key strategies and plans. This commitment is reflected in our Strategic Equality Plan.
