Equality and rights

We want all of our citizens to be able to use our services and join in with the life and work of the city. We want to make sure no one loses out because of who they are or the life choices they make. Equality is about everyone having access to

  • services
  • jobs
  • housing
  • leisure and culture.

Testing our services

Before we make decisions about our services, we look at evidence to see if there could be any good or bad effects on

  • people’s equality and human rights
  • sustainability and the environment.

We then think about how to improve the service. This is called an impact assessment. The tool we use is called an integrated impact assessment (IIA). View our impact assessments .
