Equality impact assessments

An Equality Impact Assessment (EIA) is an assessment that allows us to make sure we do not discriminate and that, where possible, we promote equality. We carry out equality impact assessments to make sure our policies and services are fair.

By asking questions about how the policy or service will affect different groups we can design them so they promote the good effects and eliminate the bad. Also, by understanding and meeting the needs of different people we can deliver a better service to them.
