Equality Impact Assessments

Equality Impact Assessment is about considering how our activities, functions, strategies, programmes, services or processes may impact on people, and whether that potential impact might be positive, negative or justified.

Equality Impact Assessment Screening allows us to consider the potential impacts and identify where improvements might need to be made to ensure our policies, procedures and practices are inclusive and fair.

An equality impact assessment is conducted on all our policies and procedures prior to their implementation. View the list below which gives information on the Equality Impact Assessments we have completed so far. It is important that this is an on-going process.
