#equal4u – Ayrshire Shared Equality Outcomes Consultation

Public sector partners across Ayrshire are working together to establish a set of equality outcomes for everyone who lives, works and learns in Ayrshire.

At the heart of this is a commitment to ensuring Ayrshire is a place where people have the best possible life chances and experience equality of opportunity in all aspects of life.

To help take this work forward, five draft high-level outcomes have been developed:

  • In Ayrshire people will feel that they are in safe, inclusive and fair communities
  • In Ayrshire people will have a positive experience of learning, working and living in our communities
  • In Ayrshire people will have equal opportunity to access and shape our public services
  • In Ayrshire people will have accessible opportunities to maximise their potential to develop their skills for life, learning and working
  • In Ayrshire public bodies will be seen as employers of choice for all people.

Come along to our #equal4u consultation events and let us know what you think.

The purpose of the consultation events is to listen to views and suggestions about what the partners can do to help achieve these. The consultation events take place as follows:

  • 10am-12.30pm on Wednesday 21 September 10am in Saltcoats Town Hall, Countess St, Saltcoats, KA21 5HP
