How to... undertake an equality analysis
DescriptionAn 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.
