Strategy and objectives

 

Equality Impact Assessment and consultation

An Equality Impact Assessment (EqA) is a way of understanding the impact of changes that may affect our workforce or members of the public.

By completing EqAs we can ensure we:

  • are able to deliver a first class service that meets the needs of our customers
  • are aware of and understand the communities we serve
  • encourage new customers from diverse backgrounds to use our services
  • meet the aims of the General Duties of the Equality Act 2010

We know it’s important to talk to people who do, or might, use our services to deliver the best and most inclusive services that we can.
