Equality impact assessment and analysis

Equality analysis is the process of finding out whether an existing or proposed action has a differential impact on different groups of people (e.g. older people, younger people, men, women etc.). It is about an organisation assessing the consequences of their actions in relation to equality.

The council consults widely – internally and externally with staff and community groups as well as with individuals – in order to take a comprehensive approach to our Equality Impact Assessment and Analysis (EqIAA) process and fully understand changes and developments required to improve the services we deliver for all people.

Key routes which we use to consult are via the South Gloucestershire Equalities Forum and our online consultation systems. We also ensure that wide consultation is conducted in relation to specific policies, procedures and practices.

Our approach ensures that we pay due regard to equality, taking a proportionate, timely approach to assessing equalities issues which is properly considered from the outset along with a clear audit trail.
