Equalities

Strategic Equality Plan 2012-2016

In order to meet the different needs that people have when accessing the Council services and employment opportunities, and to ensure that we also assist in tackling the disadvantage that some people experience within life, the Council has adopted a Strategic Equality Plan.

This was fully adopted by the Cabinet on the 23rd October 2012, after an extended period of public consultation on the original draft version. The plan runs from 2012 – 2016 after which a full review will take place.

The plan sets out ten objectives for improvement. These are the ten things that the Council will focus attention on improving over the 4 years 2012-2016. The objectives are based upon relevant data and evidence gathered and analysed, as set out further below.

Within the plan, under each objective are a number of steps or sub-objectives - these are specific things that the Council will work on in relation to each of the ten objectives. More detail on these will be contained within the relevant lead service business plans; a matrix is contained within the Strategic Equality Plan that shows which services are leading on which objectives.
