Equality impact assessments
Equality impact assessments make sure we don't discriminate against service users, residents and staff and that we promote equality. Completing the assessment helps us understand the likely impact of a decision or activity and any actions needed to reduce negative impact or improve equality.
We have a legal duty to complete equality impact assessments under the Equality Act 2010, so that we can:
- eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation and any other conduct that is prohibited by or under the Equality Act
- take steps to meet the needs of people with protected characteristics where these are different from the needs of other people
- advance equality of opportunity between people who share a relevant protected characteristic and people who do not share it
- foster good relations between people who share a relevant protected characteristic and those who do not share it
