Equality policy

The three documents that underpin our work to become a fairer council are listed below:

  • Our equality policy sets out how we expect staff and members to understand about equality and operate in a non-discriminatory and inclusive way. A summary leaflet version of the equality policy is also available for staff. This can be printed on A4 (double sided) and then folded in half to create an A5 leaflet.
  • Our Fair For All Programme  is our equality scheme which contains an action plan, outlining how we are going to achieve greater equality and diversity and act on our policy commitments. Each year we publish an annual report outlining progress against the Fair for All Programme and best practice across the organisation.
  • The Impact assessment toolkit which helps us consider, reduce or remove the negative impacts on different groups and promote equality better.
