Equalities Needs Assessment

The Equalities Needs Assessment 2013-14(pdf, 813KB) brings together a range of equalities data and information about children and young people in both Richmond upon Thames and Kingston upon Thames. It is structured around the nine protected characteristics and presents the latest data that is available in these areas. The aim has been to use consistent data wherever possible to allow comparison between both boroughs.

Within this document, under each protected characteristic section, background and context is provided, followed by a range of data and information relating to the protected characteristic being considered.

The key equality findings are set out at the beginning of this document and relate to both service users and staff. These findings, and the other equality related data presented in this assessment, will inform both the Kingston and Richmond Councils’ equality assessment and the Achieving for Children equality assessment and will be used in the commissioning and delivery of services.
