RE: Next policy briefing - equality impact assessments
We're doing some work around Equality Imapct Assessments at the moment, as our scrutiny committees are seeing more and more of them, particularly in reports on service redesigns. I think this publication could be very helpful.
Our work on EIAs has two main strands at the moment:
- workshops for elected members on how EIAs should be carried out
- our lead Committee on equality looks at a range of EIAs and comments on their thoroughness, evidence base and whether mitigating action goes far enough.
Happy to provide more information.
