Our work to implement the duty to promote equality

We publish a range of information in order to demonstrate how as a Council we have been implementing the duty to promote equality.

Public Sector Equality Duty

The Public Sector Equality Duty 2011 came into force in April 2011. We publish our progress to date, and also our continuing plans to implement the duty which covers the following protected groups, i.e. all sections of our community:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Race/ethnicity
  • Religion or belief
  • Sex (previously known as gender)
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender re-assignment
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Marriage and Civil Partnership (first part of the duty only)

Council equality and diversity policy commitments and objectives are also contained in the A fairer Borough section of the Corporate Plan (pdf, 1.2 MB) which is outlined on the following pages.

Latest information: January 2021

We are currently producing action plans to address gaps in local data collection.
