Outcome of consultation on our Equality Scheme Objectives

 

The Equality Act 2010 brought together previous anti-discrimination laws into one act. It makes the law easier to understand and strengthens protection for specific groups (age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief and sexual orientation).

 

The new law also requires us to publish information demonstrating how we will meet our Public Sector Equality Duty and requires us to publish our objectives which will help us meet these requirements.

 

In February 2012 we consulted on our new Equality Scheme and its objectives.  In addition to internal consultation we consulted with local community groups, residents, parish councils and other public and voluntary sector partners from across Staffordshire. 

 

People were asked if the Single Equality Scheme was clear in its objectives, if its actions would help us to meet and exceed our legal obligations and if our six core values (fairness, respect, openness, integrity, accountability, and trust) would help us achieve our vision.  All of the responses we had agreed with these statements. 

 

We also received some specific feedback around:

 

  • Working with the voluntary and community sector.
  • Community cohesion.
  • Consultation with residents regarding decisions or changes to services.

 

This feedback has now been incorporated into the scheme, or where appropriate, considered as part of our future equality plans.
