Guidance for Arts Organisations
Arts Council of Wales expects those who receive grants to implement effective equal opportunities policies and use this Code of Practice for Funded Organisations as a guidance in this respect.
In addition, we have produced this example of an equal opportunities policy as additional guidance for small voluntary arts organisations.

Our Internal Equalities Monitoring Group, comprising staff from across the organisation, monitors progress in implementing our equalities work and reports directly to our Council.
This process aims to ensure that we consider the impact our policies my have on different people and help us address any actual or potential inequalities and therefore improve our services and employment practices.
All our Equality Impact Assessments can be found alongside recently created or updated policies on our website.
