Equalities monitoring

Equalities

We must consider how different people will be affected by the decisions we make and the services we provide. We are required to do this by law, under the Equality Act 2010.

With up-to-date and accurate information we can better:

  • understand the people who use our services
  • meet specific needs
  • identify and remove possible discrimination or barriers to our services

Our equalities monitoring form is used to record this information. 

Meeting your needs

Collecting this information does not in itself improve equality. We need to analyse and make use of the information by responding to what it’s telling us. We do this through equality impact assessments.
