Equality Impact Assessments

An Equality Impact Assessment (EIA) is a tool that helps us check the impact that policies, services and projects might have on residents and staff.

The assessment is part of our decision making process. It helps us identify the needs of different groups, opportunities to improve equality of outcomes and to reduce the likelihood of discrimination.

EIAS help us to meet our Equality Duties as laid out in the Equality Act 2010.

We have templates for carrying out assessments. The relevant documents are:
