Equality Impact Assessments 2016
Our policies need to reflect equality and diversity within our community recognising that different people have different needs.
Equality impact assessment :
helps the Council to promote equality of opportunity and good relations between groups
ensures the Council combats direct and indirect discrimination
enables the Council to mainstream principles of Equality and Diversity into our everyday work
increases confidence in the Council’s services
promotes the development of customer - led services
encourages greater openness about decision-making
improves the overall work of the Council, by ensuring that policies are planned and researched
The equality impact assessment process focuses on people within our community who are at risk from discrimination and social exclusion. People within the protected characteristic groups are at particular risk from discrimination and social exclusion.
