In 2013 we commissioned NatCen to undertake an independent evaluation of the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) in Wales. Our aim was to gather and analyse data in order to produce a report on how Welsh public authorities are meeting their general and specific duties under the Equality Act (2010). This report presents the findings and examines the impact of the PSED. It has allowed us to measure progress and capture how the PSED is acting as a catalyst for change.
A range of organisations across Wales, both devolved and non-devolved, have taken part in the research and this has assisted in demonstrating how the PSED is working effectively in Wales. Challenges and solutions are identified in the report and there are case studies of where the PSED has improved outcomes for service users and staff. These case studies can be used and adapted by public authorities.
