Equality impact assessments

An equality impact assessment (EQIA) is a means of refocusing services or employment practices on the needs of diverse communities or diverse groups of staff.

When carrying out an EQIA our aim is to:
  • identify any effect or likely effect on different groups within the community 
  • make sure that, as far as possible, any negative consequences for minority groups are eliminated or minimised and opportunities for promoting equality are maximised

This section includes completed equality impact assessments with information about the methodology used in undertaking them.
