Equality impact assessments ensure that our policies, services and legislation do not discriminate against anyone and that, where possible, we promote equality of opportunity.
The equality impact assessment is a systematic and evidence-based tool, which enables us to consider the likely impact of work on different groups of people. Completion of equality impact assessments is a legal requirement under equality legislation.
The full versions of the equality impact assessments are available from our Corporate Equality Division, which can also provide the information on alternative formats.
