Equality Impact Assessments
In order to understand whether our services are meeting everyone’s needs and that everyone who needs them has access to those services, we have developed an Equality Impact Assessment (EIA) process for new and existing functions and policies. An EIA will be carried out on new policies as they are developed and over time on existing functions and policies.
As far as possible, EIAs will be carried out as part of the preparation for service reviews, or as part of the review and roll-forward of key medium and long-term service planning activity, or where major changes in service delivery are under consideration.
More details about the Council’s approach to undertaking Equality Impact Assessments can be seen on the Equality_Impact_Assessments section of the website.
