11. Equality analysis
One of the ways we will demonstrate that we are complying with our Equalities Duties will be through the completion of Equality Impact Assessments for key service changes and policy change. Officers use our Equality Impact Assessment Form and Guidance to help them identify possible areas of risk of unlawful discrimination. The Form helps them analyse the potential and prompts them to consider steps and opportunities to remedy this. These will be included in Cabinet reports
Other indicators of disadvantage can also be considered that are relevant to East Devon including rural isolation and poverty. This process allows action to be taken to eliminate, minimise or balance any discriminatory or negative consequences.
