Equality Act and Public Sector Equality Duty

As a public service we take guidance from several pieces of the legislation. The key one that relates to Equality Diversity and Inclusion is the Equality Act 2010. This Act outlines the 9 protected characteristics and that discrimination against any of these groups is unlawful. For further information about this click here.  

Section 149 of the Equality Act 2010 outlines a further obligation for public authorities. This is known as the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED). Generally, the PSED asks us to:

As a Service provider, it is important to consider how our actions can impact different groups in different ways, this ensures that our services meet the diverse needs of our communities and staff groups.

Through these assessments we can ensure our services best meet the diverse needs of everyone.  

We recognise that it’s a privilege to serve our communities and we embrace the Equality Act 2010 and the Public Sector Equality Duty, along with the legal duties they place upon us.
