The council spends tens of millions of pounds a year on essential services that have a big effect on people's lives like education, social care, housing and economic regeneration.

Part of its job is to ensure the council itself makes every effort to respect children's rights, promotes healthy lives, helps tackle poverty and play its part in treating people and communities are treated with fairness, dignity and respect.

Now the council has launched a consultation so residents can have their say on its Strategic Equality Plan which aim to help deliver on these commitments to local people.

As part of the plan the council must set a series of equality objectives demonstrating how it will go about promoting equal opportunities for all and making a real difference to the lives of those living and working in Swansea.

The aim is to ensure our equality objectives for 2020-2024 will address the recommendations identified by a council scrutiny panel inquiry equalities and ensure the council pays due regard to children's rights.

The consultation ends at midnight on March 2.
