Equality impact assessments

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 and what needs improvement
  • 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

We have published several of our completed EIA's, which you can download below.

If there is one you would particularly like to see which is not available on this page, please let us know by using the contact form at the bottom of this page.
