Equality Impact Assessments (EqIA) in 2007/2008

Equality Impact Assessments are a key legal requirement of the 'General Duty' under the Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000. The council is committed to meeting its legal obligations and delivering fair and accessible services to all. Impact assessments allow us to underpin this commitment and evaluate our services and the way we deliver them. In order to fully address the equalities agenda, the council has led the way in developing good practice by wherever possible addressing all six equality strands when carrying out Impact Assessments.

In 2006, the council was externally assessed and verified for achieving level 5 of the national Equality Standard for Local Government. In recognition of this, we were awarded the Equality Mark by the Improvement and Development Agency.
