Promoting Equality

How can we build a more equal Wales?

Our work shines a spotlight on the structural inequalities we need to overcome, drawing on a range of expertise and evidence to determine what needs to be done and how to do it.

The pandemic has further highlighted a landscape of inequality in Wales, with certain people – and areas -disproportionately, and often multiply, disadvantaged. Whilst important efforts are underway to address such inequality, this presents a challenge to policy and practice when longstanding structural and systemic factors are at work.  WCPP’s Promoting Equalities programme engages with the different dimensions of inequality through research and evidence – for example, our forthcoming Poverty Review and our published work on race equality – to consider what ‘a more equal Wales’ might actually mean and require.



Our published research on inequality provides vital information for policymakers and researchers.
