Consultation to share with third sector organisations

We have been commissioned by the University of South Wales to deliver independent engagement in relation to developing their next Strategic Equality Plan objectives and actions.

We have a survey online (accessible Word and paper copies also available by emailing us) as part of this engagement.

This is open to third sector organisations in Wales, as well as staff and students at any USW site.

As this is particularly relevant to local community groups and third sector organisation in Merthyr Tydfil we would be grateful if you could share the information below in newsletters and on your website.
