Equality duty

The public sector Equality Duty came into force across Great Britain in 2011.  It means that public bodies like us have to consider all individuals when carrying out our day-to-day work.  This includes in shaping policy, in delivering services and in relation to our own employees.

It also means that we have due regard to the need to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act.
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.

As a public body, we publish Equality Information which demonstrates our compliance with the General Equality Duty. 

These publications are available below
