Equality Impact Assessments

Equality Impact Assessments

Equality Impact Assessments (EIAs) are used to assess policies, services or processes provided by the District Council. EIAs are a way of checking how groups protected by the Equality Act 2010 might be affected by new policies or services. It is an assessment that focuses on fairness, access and inclusion.It is a way of analysing a new policy, function or proposed service.

Changes to services or the way we do things are also checked for any impacts they may have on protected groups.The assessment process helps to identify and remove barriers which the proposed policy, service or change may create for people with protected characteristics.

Why EIAs are completed

The District Council is required by law to prevent discrimination in the performance of public functions and to maximise opportunities to promote equality.

The Public Sector Equality Duty says that the District Council must show how it:

  • Monitors policies for any adverse impact
  • Gathers information on the effects of policies
  • Assesses and consults on the likely impact of proposed policies on protected groups
  • Publishes the results of consultation, monitoring and assessments

Completing EIAs is the key way the District Council meets these legal requirements.

However, the main reason for carrying out an EIA is to improve services for residents in the Derbyshire Dales.
