A Parliament for all

We have made great strides towards promoting diversity and inclusion, and in ensuring these principles are at the heart of what we do as a Parliament.

However, if we have learnt anything over the past Senedd term it is that we cannot be complacent, there is still much work to be done.

We look forward to building on our achievements throughout this Sixth Senedd.

Outreach and Engagement

As a parliamentary body, it is important that the Senedd represents all of the people of Wales and that everyone has access to our work, our building and our information.

As last year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have adapted our engagement activities from face-to-face to virtual activities.
