Equality Impact Assessments
Information on the council's equality impact assessments
We want to make sure we plan and provide services, policies and employment opportunities in a fair, inclusive and equal way to meet the needs of our residents, visitors, councillors and employees irrespective of disability, age, ethnicity, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, religion, belief, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity.
What is an Equality Impact Assessment?
An equality impact assessment is a detailed review of a current or proposed policy, procedure, practice or service to establish whether it is, or has the potential to directly or indirectly discriminate against the groups referred to above. We also consider what more the council can do to advance equality of opportunity, foster good relations between groups of people and take account of people’s human rights.
The full assessments can be viewed using the links on the left hand side of the page.
We now have a Joint EIA timetable with the Vale of White Horse District Council that can be downloaded from the menu on the right.
Assessing the impact of our budget decisions
In order to ensure consideration is given to the impact our budget cut proposals could have on vulnerable residents in south Oxfordshire we have carried out equality risk assessments. You can view or download these from the links on the left.
