Publication of equality information

As part of the public sector equality duty the council has a specific duty to publish equality information about its employees and residents who share a protected characteristic and to prepare and publish equality objectives.

The council is committed to publishing information that is accessible and helps us to shape interventions and meet the needs of our service users and community. The key publications are as follows:

Borough profile

The borough profile brings together the key facts and figures about Tower Hamlets into one consolidated report.

It presents the challenges and opportunities that make up the fabric of the borough.

Borough Equality Assessment (BEA)

The Borough Equality Assessment is an assessment of equality in Tower Hamlets by our strategic plan outcome areas.

The BEA used intelligence from national, regional and local data, engagement with local people through our equality forums and engagement with council and partner services to identify equality issues and performance challenges.

The BEA is supplemented by our bi-annual borough profile which provides data to enable us to understand our progress and areas of continuous challenges.

The BEA can found at the bottom of the borough profile page.

Gender pay gap

We are required to publish information on the differences in pay between men and women on our website.

We have decided to include pay gap data in relation to ethnicity, disability, religion, sexuality and age.

For our reports please visit our gender pay gap page.

Workforce equality data

The workforce equality data provides  information about the council’s employees who share a protected characteristic.
