Equality Impact Assessments

What is an Equality Impact Assessment?

We complete Equality Impact Assessments (EqIA) to make sure that every service and policy we deliver is appropriate and accessible and does not, however unwittingly, disadvantage or discriminate against any group.

The introduction of the Equality Duty in 2010 meant that public bodies now have a duty to consider all six strands of equality as well as protected characteristics.
