Wales: action plan to rid nation of racism

The Welsh Government has laid out its aims to make Wales an anti-racist country by 2030 with its Anti-Racist Wales Action Plan.

Published in June, the plan draws on the experiences of black, Asian and minority ethnic communities facing racism and race inequality.

It sets out various actions from across government in the areas in which it believes it has control or can make a real difference to people’s lives (including the way government itself operates). The actions are focused on the next two years, with the vision of an anti-racist Wales in 2030, acknowledging work must continue.

The plan’s actions include ensuring people from ethnic minorities who work in health services are treated fairly, and guaranteeing ethnic minorities receive the same health services as others, including through changes to maternity services.
