Equalities

The Vale of Glamorgan Council is committed to eliminating discrimination and removing barriers to services, information, premises, facilities and employment.

 

We embrace equality of opportunity irrespective of disability, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, gender, gender identity, marital status, sexual orientation, Welsh language choice, culture and religion.

The public sector equality duty covers eight protected characteristics: Age, Race, Disability, Religion or Belief, Gender Reassignment, Sex, Pregnancy and Maternity Sexual Orientation
