The Equality Act 2010 introduced a general public sector equality duty which requires public bodies to have due regard to the need to:
- Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act.
- Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
- Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
The duty is supported by specific duties which require public bodies to publish equality data.
The equality data set out in this section brings together local and national data sources and these can be used to inform work towards promoting equality and eliminating discrimination. For more detailed local reports and useful links, please go to our equality information page.
