The Equality and Human Rights Coalition 


The Equality and Human Rights Coalition was established in 2004. Its purpose is to enable organisations who work in the equalities and human rights field to engage with each other, share information and good practice and influence policy which impacts on the experiences of people who face unequal and discriminatory treatment in Wales. This is achieved by joint working on a small number of key issues of shared concern. Examples of work the Coalition has undertaken recently and minutes of the meetings are listed below.

WCVA is responsible for faciliating the network, which currently has over 90 members. Membership is open to all third sector organsiations working in the equalities and human rights field. The Coalition meets quarterly with representation from Welsh Government and the Equalties and Human Rights Commission attending most meetings to provide updates on their activity.

Chair: Cath Lewis, Children in Wales
