This questionnaire is for individuals living, working, or studying in Wales.
It is about your own experiences of equality, and human rights in Wales.
We want to know about what you know and your experiences.
We also want to know how your experiences of inequality and not having access to your human rights is different from what should happen.
We want to look at what can be improved or made better in Wales. We want your ideas and your views.
We are keen to hear from:
  • Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people
  • Gypsies, Roma and Travellers
  • Asylum Seekers and Refugees
  • Disabled people. This includes:
People with mobility impairments. For example, wheelchair users or people with health conditions that affect walking.
People with sensory impairments. For example, Blind, Deaf, or hearing-impaired people.
People with learning impairments / disabilities. For example, autistic people, neuro-diverse people, or people with dyslexia, dyspraxia, or Downs Syndrome.
People with cognitive impairments. For example, people with dementia or hydrocephalus.
People with long-term health conditions. For example, HIV, diabetes or MS.
  • Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual people

We will use your experiences to shape solutions. The research team will write these solutions in a report we will send to Welsh Government. Welsh Government will look at these solutions to improve equality and human rights in Wales.

All information we give to Welsh Government will be anonymous. We will not include any information that could identify you. We do not ask for your name in this questionnaire.

Please fill in the equality questionnaire at the end of this questionnaire. This helps us know we have reached everyone. We will use this information to reach any groups we have not reached. We will only report a summary of equality information and remove all numbers under 5% from this report. This will not be able to identify you.

You can skip any questions you do not want to answer in this questionnaire. The more detail and information you do give us the more solutions we will be able to use in our report. Please do consider filling in every question if you can.

Thank you
