Equality and Diversity

Equality and diversity is at the heart of what we do as a Service.  It not only shapes how we engage and consult with our communities, but also influences the way in which we deliver our services.

As
a service we aim to increase visibility, raise awareness and promote the welfare of all groups that are identified under the protected characteristics. Our ongoing work is to identify, understand, and eliminate all barriers that prevent access to services, information, and employment.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service provides the platform for members to join our existing Network Forum and the potential membership of different groups available, such as:-

Disability Network Forum

We have a well-established group in the Service which is intended as a support network for employees who either care for someone with a disability, have a disability themselves or a keen interest to provide advice to others.   

Groups we are keen to further establish; which are not exhaustive…

LGBT Network Forum
LGBT is an initialism for individuals who identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bi-sexual or transgender. 

Multi-Faith Network Forum
Multi-Faith is to feel an affinity with aspects of more than one religion, philosophy or world-view.  

Our Main Objectives

  • Championing issues for employees
  • Contributing to the organisation’s inclusion and diversity agenda
  • Raising awareness of the impact of relevant legislation
  • Advising on policy development

The Equality Act 2010 legally protects people from discrimination in the workplace and in wider society.

It replaced previous anti-discrimination laws with a single Act, making the law easier to understand and strengthening protection in some situations. It sets out the different ways in which it’s unlawful to treat someone.
