Equality impact assessments

As a local authority, South Cambridgeshire District Council (SCDC) has a legal responsibility to ensure that its policies, procedures and functions do not adversely affect the different sections of its diverse community.

Equality Impact Assessments (EqIA) provide the framework through which this assessment can happen. Each Council policy or function is considered in relation to its impact across the nine protected characteristics of equality: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnerships, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sex and sexual orientation. If an adverse impact is identified then, wherever possible, attempts need to be made to remove or minimise this impact.

A full programme of Equality Impact Assessments is now in place. Completed Assessments are available below.

SCDC welcomes your view on any of these Assessments. Contact us at equality@scambs.gov.uk.
