Equality impact assessments
An impact assessment is the tool to help us identify the actual or potential impact of our activities, both existing and new, on our customers and staff. It helps us to provide and deliver excellent services to our customers and colleagues by making sure they reflect the need of the individual and the community.
By carrying out impact assessments, we can ensure that the services we provide fulfil anti-discrimination and equalities legislation.
