Equality impact assessments

Equalities

We use equality impact assessments (EIAs) to help improve the services we deliver to you.

Why we undertake EIAs

We use them when making:

  • significant changes to policies or services
  • decisions that could have a disproportionate impact on people or groups protected under the Equality Act 2010

EIAs also help us to open services up to new groups and improve services. They also help us get services right first time, saving money and time.

Where we publish our EIAs

We publish results of all of our completed EIAs. They are attached to each report where there is a public decision.

Please see the appendices of the relevant papers of our council committees.
