Equality Impact Assessments

An Equality Impact Assessment (EQIA) is a thorough and systematic analysis of a policy. Its purpose is to improve the work of the council by making sure we promote equality and do not discriminate.

The assessment makes reference to the nine equality categories as defined by Section 75:

  • religious belief
  • political opinion
  • racial group
  • age
  • marital status
  • sexual orientation
  • gender
  • disability
  • dependency

The EQIA determines if the policy has any negative impact on any of the nine categories and an alternative to the policy to achieve the promotion of equality of opportunity.
