Equality objectives, what should we focus on?

Written on . Posted in Community, Consultation, Equalities, Our performance, Residents, Your community, Your council

Help us bring about positive change by telling us your views on our proposed equality objectives.

Reducing inequality is an integral part of the councils business. We aim to treat everyone equally and fairly according to their needs.

We actively seek to narrow the gap between people who are disadvantaged in comparison to their peers, and aim to provide a high standard of service that is accessible to all.

To focus our equality related work, we have developed a range of objectives for the next 4 years.

We want to make sure you agree that we have identified the areas that will make the most difference to equality for our communities, and which will help to advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations between different groups of people.

In developing the equality objectives, we have considered information that we already have on how important relevant issues are, how the objectives would help us to meet our equality duties, and what we can deliver over the next 4 years.
