What is it?

EqIA is a method or tool for assessing the effects or impacts of a council policy or function on removing barriers to equality. Research shows that the way organisations do things can have unintentional negative effects on groups of citizens; this is known as institutional discrimination.

The Equality Act 2010 introduced a new public sector equality duty which requires public authorities to try and eliminate discrimination; promote equality and good relations across a range of protected characteristics.

Equality impact assessment (EqIA) is one way to ensure public policies meet these legal requirements. We have revised our equality impact assessment process to take into account the change in legislation and the addition of protected groups. For guidance on the EqIA process view our pdf icon EQIA Guidance July 2019 [338kb] for members of the staff.
