The Socio-economic Duty came into force in Wales on the 31st of March 2021 and aims to deliver better outcomes for those who experience socio-economic disadvantage in areas such as health, life expectancy and educational attainment. Whilst public bodies have welcomed the Duty, research from the Equality and Human Rights Commission suggests it has not been fully implemented and more support is needed. The Socio-economic Duty is an opportunity to make a difference to the health and wellbeing of those experiencing socio-economic disadvantage and promote equality.
This webinar will explore the implementation of the Duty in practice, provide additional guidance on systems leadership, using data effectively, engaging meaningfully and knowing how organisations have made a difference. The webinar will explain how inequalities of outcome are linked to socio-economic disadvantage, with a strong focus on health.
