Have Your Say…

South Wales Fire and Rescue Service is keen to ensure that an awareness of equality is deeply rooted within the Service’s work in order to secure complete equality for everyone.  In this respect, our draft Strategic Equality Plan 2020-25 builds on the 2015-2020 Plan and we   are keen to hear your views!

The Plan introduces our strategic equality outcomes for the next five years and these outcomes will be built into what we do, with every corporate action being related to one or more of them.This allows for us to accurately monitor improvements and increase our service to all of our communities.
