We need to understand the needs of people living and working in the county; information about communities helps us identify priorities, set objectives, meet needs and monitor outcomes. Service and strategic Impact assessments will gain insight into people affected by policies and practices. There are many sources of information and data about communities, including consultations and research carried out by the County Council. Find out more.
We have a small grants pot for equality related initiatives in the community.
Find out more about organisations working on equality or with Protected Characteristic Groups.
