Equality Analysis

The Equality Act 2010 Public Sector Single Equality Duty requires public authorities to publish details of the 'Equality Analysis' they have undertaken.

Equality Analysis is similar to Equality Impact Assessment, but with more emphasis on demonstrating how we have used information, data and consultation results to inform our decisions, policies and service development.

Equality Analysis and Equality Impact Assessments involve considering the effect on different groups protected from discrimination by the Equality Act, such as people of different ethnicities. This is to check if there are any unintended consequences for some groups, and also if the policy or service will be fully effective for all target groups. It involves using equality information, and the results of engagement with protected groups and others, to understand the actual effect or the potential effect of our functions, policies or decisions. It can help us to identify practical steps to tackle any negative effects or discrimination, to advance equality and to foster good relations.

We have amended our Equality Impact Assessment toolkit to reflect the requirements of the Public Sector Equality duty and to help provide more of a focus on the 'equality analysis' element.
