Equality policies and strategies

We have a number of policies and strategies to make sure the council is active in promoting equality, access, and inclusion in our service delivery, policy development and employment practices.

Equality Objectives 2015-19

Our second set of equality objectives were agreed by Cabinet on 8 September, following eight weeks of public consultation.

  • narrowing the gap
  • understanding emerging needs
  • listening to customers and responding to feedback
  • making sure our Next Generation Council is accessible and inclusive

You can read about the feedback we received below:

We are now developing our action plan which will set out precise actions and deadlines to show how we will achieve our objectives. The action plan will appear here shortly and we will report back to Cabinet on progress annually.

We also reviewed our first set of equality objectives that were agreed in 2011, and the progress report is available to view below:

Equality Duty Information Report

The council is required to publish equality information on an annual basis as part of the Public Sector Equality Duty under the Equality Act 2010.  Below are the published reports:

Research Project

The council commissioned a project to look at how we can improve the way we consult and engage with different groups within the county. This report is a summary of the findings, and will be used to help us develop our new equality objectives.
