Diverse Cymru can provide a facilitator, help design relevant and open questions, recruit participants from our extensive network of contacts from across the protected characteristics or from specific groups, and provide feedback. 

Equality audits

Our consultants can review and advise on your Strategic Equality Plan, and wider policies and procedures and assist you to develop an action plan to identify and implement the priorities. 

Building equality into your project or service

Our consultants can assist you to design a new project or service or service change to fully build in equality considerations. We assist you in considering the ways your project or service design may create unintentional barriers and how you can maximise involvement and benefit from diverse groups. 

Equality Impact Assessment

Members of our EIA group carry out independent reviews on your impact assessments for new or existing strategies, programmes, plans and policies to determine whether they create potentially adverse impact upon protected characteristic groups.

We can assist you to develop your own critical friends or advisory group to provide feedback on your services.
