How to... undertake an equality analysis


How to... undertake an equality analysis


An equality analysis is a way of considering the effects of policies, actions or services on different groups protected from discrimination by the Equality Act 2010. Housing organisations undertake equality analysis for a number of reasons:
  • the general equality duty (part of the Equality Act 2010) requires organisations that carry out a public function to analyse the effect of policies, procedures and practices
  • it is a tool to tackle discrimination and disadvantage
  • better understanding of the diversity of customers can support more inclusive and cohesive communities.
This How to... will guide you through the process of carrying out an equality analysis including the stages of the analysis and what you need to think about for each of the protected characteristics.
