Equality impact assessments

Equality impact assessments are an essential part of our commitment to and action for delivering equality, diversity and inclusion in all aspects of service delivery and employment practice. Our aim, in line with equality legislation, is to ensure that all of our services and employment practices have a positive impact on the diverse communities we serve.

We complete equality impact assessments to address our obligations relating to all the protected characteristics:

  • sex/gender
  • marriage/civil partnership status
  • disability
  • race
  • sexual orientation
  • religion or belief
  • age
  • pregnancy / maternity status
  • gender reassignment

Through our equality impact assessments we aim to improve and develop our services and employment practices across all the protected characteristics. The impact assessment process is part of the Trust's policy-making, service planning, modernisation and project development processes.

We have established a Trust-wide Equality and Diversity Sub Committee to review and improve the quality of these completed assessments, as well as the effectiveness of our approach. Areas identified for improvement and development through this ongoing review process will be reviewed by the Divisional Equality and Diversity Forums, with oversight from the Trust-wide Equality and Diversity Sub Committee.
