Equality impact assessments
The council uses Equality Impact Assessments (EIAs) to improve services. They're focused on fairness, access and inclusion. They help us to consider a policy, service or process in terms of how it might affect different groups protected in law (the Equality Act 2010).
Why we do EIAs
We use EIAs to find and remove barriers in services which might stop people knowing about the service, using it and getting the best from it. This is part of our legal duty.
EIAs also help us to open services up to new groups and make services better. They also help us get services right first time - saving money and time.
We carry out EIAs each year as part of our budget setting process.
