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
