Equality Impact Assessments - EIA
At North Devon Council we need to understand whether our services are meeting everyone’s needs and that people who need our services have access to them. To help us to do this we will carry out Equality Impact Assessments, and complete Equality Impact Assessment (EIA) forms.
What are Equality Impact Assessments?
The purpose of doing an Equality Impact Assessment form (EIA) is to ensure that North Devon Council’s decisions and activities do not disadvantage different groups in our community.
The process involves assessing the impact the policy or function will have on different groups by answering a series of questions on an EIA form.
The EIA process will help to:
- make sure we are thinking carefully about the likely impact of new or existing policies on people from different groups
- develop policies that focus on promoting equality of opportunity
- identify what is working well
- encourage greater openness and public involvement
When is an Equality Impact Assessment undertaken?
Equality Impact Assessments will be carried out on all existing and new policies and functions. The equality issues considered will include:
- gender reassignment
- marriage and civil partnership
- pregnancy and maternity
- religion or beliefs
- sexual orientation
What will we do with the information?
Once an Equality Impact Assessment has been carried out, if a negative impact is identified, we will need to consider what changes need to undertaken within the policy or function to ensure the negative impact is reduced or removed.
Completed EIAs will be published online for the current, and previous financial year.
