The Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) means public sector organisations must take into account the need to:
- get rid of unlawful discrimination
- advance equal opportunities
- build good relations between communities
The third sector (such as charities or non-governmental organisations) can challenge public bodies in Wales if they do not comply with the PSED.
For example, a charity working with disabled people can challenge a public body who allowed disability discrimination to happen.
The resources on this page are designed to help third sector organisations (who work in an area relating to a protected characteristic) to challenge the public sector where appropriate – to help make Wales a fairer place.
