Equality, diversity and integration

Equality, Diversity and Cohesion Impacts

Impact Assessments

We analyse the impact of our policies and practices on equality and this informs policy design and final decision making.  You can view Key data, policies and strategies and reports which feed into this process.  We also use the results of public consultations and you can view the list of current consultation exercises and information about how you can get involved.

Using equality analysis to consider the effect on different groups protected from discrimination by the Equality Act and using information to understand the potential effects of our actions, can help us to identify steps to tackle any negative effects or discrimination, to advance equality and to foster good relations.  

Impact Assessment Process

Our impact assessment process analyses the effects on equality to inform decision making and has been extended to cover all the protected characteristics.  This will be reviewed as part of the development of our Single Equalities Scheme.
