Equality objectives

Our vision for Birmingham is 'an inclusive city, in which many more people, can play their part – a fair chance for everyone in Birmingham'.

Find out more details about how we are delivering our objectives and our key initiatives in the Birmingham City Council's Equality objectives 2014 document.

Working together, we want to create a city that is:

  • Fair – Safety: People are safe, especially the most vulnerable; Wellbeing: All benefit from improved health and wellbeing and Poverty: Children and families will not live in poverty - Birmingham will be a "Living Wage City".
  • Prosperous – Education and skills: People will have the qualifications they need for work, including qualifications for school leavers and working age population skills; Youth: Young people will be in employment, training or education; Unemployment: No groups or areas will be blighted by high unemployment and Sustainability: Birmingham will be more environmentally sustainable.
  • Democratic - Engagement and influence: Local people will be engaged in local democracy, and have more influence on local decisions.
