Email: Amanda.dawson-blower@staffordshire.gov.uk


The public sector equality duty, of the equality act 2010, require public authorities to pay 'due regard' to:

  • Eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation,

  • Advance equality of opportunity,

  • Foster good relations between persons.

In practice, this means;

  • Remove or minimise disadvantages,

  • Take steps to meet the needs of everyone,

  • Encourage people to participate in public life where their participation is low.

We introduced Community Impact Assessments (CIAs) to streamline existing impact assessments into one framework. This includes a number of rigorous questions to help us to undertake an equality analysis so that we are able to meet the requirements of the public sector equality duty and tackle health inequalities.

The public sector equality duty also requires public authorities to report on employment activity, a picture of our workforce in the last 12 months is outlined.
