We have drafted our new Equality Plan and Objectives for 2023-27 which builds on our previous equality plans.
Under the Public Sector Equality Duty (Equality Act 2010) we are required to set equality objectives every four-years. These objectives are in addition to our general duty obligations to eliminate unlawful discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic* and those who do not. These are age, disability, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity.
Once you have had the chance to read the Draft Equality Plan and Objectives for 2023-2027, please complete the survey on the proposed equality objectives and list of actions in the survey.
