The UK Government's Equality Act 2010 replaced the existing equality legislation and consolidates anti-discrimination laws into a single Act. It simplifies the law and removes inconsistencies making it easier for people to understand and comply with. The Equality Act 2010 is law and applies to everyone, both in the public and private sector.

Equality outcomes

We have agreed fourteen equality outcomes. These outcomes are not meant to encompass all the work to reduce inequality in the city. Instead they reflect what are considered to be the priorities and form a framework on which we will build our equality agenda. Included within the report on the pdf icon Equality Outcomes 2017 to 2021 [469kb] is a Statement of Intent that summarises our broader commitment to equality.

Mainstreaming report

As part of the statutory requirement to mainstream equality into planning, service delivery, and performance management, we are also required to publish a pdf icon Equality Progress Report 2017 [1008kb] on our progress towards meeting the general equality duty every two years beginning in 2013.
