Equality and Health Impact Assessments
We carry out equality and health impact assessments on the services we deliver.
We carry out equality and health impact assessments on the services we deliver, our policies, functions, strategies and procedures as part of the work on equality for local government. This includes existing policies, new policies or those which are being changed.
The Equality and Health Impact Assessment (EqHIA) is a legal requirement under the Equality Act 2010 and aims to improve the work of the council by making sure it does not discriminate in the way that it provides services and employment and that, where possible, it does all it can to promote equality and good relations for the community and various minority groups. Assessments accompany key decisions and many can be found on the council's committee system.
