Equality Impact Assessment or Equality Analysis
We carry out equality impact assessments to show that we have considered equality duties when making decisions. It is good practice for us to keep a record of our considerations.
These assessments highlight the potential impact of a Council policy, strategy, project or service on residents and staff.
They help us to meet the needs of the whole community and deliver better services. They make sure we promote equality, and meet anti-discrimination and equalities legislation.
When assessments are completed, a summary is included as an appendix to the document they review or published next to information on the project.
