Phil Chambers Consultancy, on behalf of Natural Resources Wales, are keen to find out more about your experiences and views as a visitor to the outdoor environment. This will help us make sure there are opportunities for all here – we are particularly interested in your views if you identify yourself with a protected characteristic under the Equality Act 2010 (Disability; Sex (gender); Gender reassignment ; Pregnancy and maternity; Race; Religion or belief;
Sexual orientation; Age).
We want to find out what you need when planning your visit to the great outdoors and to learn about your experiences and any barriers you may face.
The purpose of the project is to assess and evaluate how effective is NRW in the delivery of its responsibilities’ under the Equality Act (2010) in outdoor environments and related built environment settings. This will be achieved by undertaking a series of audits by a team of experts across the equality spectrum using questionnaires, national access guidelines and previous experience of the audit team.
