Equality Impact Assessments (EIA's)

We use Equality Impact Assessments (EIAs) as a way of analysing what we are doing with the end user as the main focus.  The benefits of impact assessments include:
  • helping to identify whether we are excluding different groups from any of our services
  • helping to identify direct or indirect discrimination
  • assisting us to think carefully about the likely impact of new or existing policies on different equality groups
  • helping us to target resources more effectively
  • helping us to identify what is working well as well as what needs improving
  • helping us to better understand the needs and aspirations of the diverse communities we are here to serve
  • helping us to reality check our policies and services with the people affected by them
