Equalities Monitoring Form
The Public Sector Equality Duty requires the council to analyse the effect of what we do on all protected groups. Collecting, analysing and using equality information helps us to see how our policies and activities are affecting various sections of our communities. In employment and service provision, it helps us to identify any existing inequalities and where new inequalities may be developing and take action to tackle them.
The monitoring is carried out by using nine "protected characteristics" identified in the Equality Act 2010. These are:
- Gender Reassignment
- Marriage and Civil Partnership
- Religion or Belief
- Pregnancy and Maternity, and
- Sexual Orientation
In order to reflect the full diversity of Haringey, we have added the categories of:
- Refugees and Asylum Seekers, and
These are used to cover all areas of service delivery and employment practices. We also encourage all organisations which enter into a partnership arrangement with us to use them as well, so that information can be shared.
Equality monitoring is central to ensuring that as an organisation we continually improve our service delivery. This enables our services to know their service users, look at possible diverse needs and barriers to equal access.
We are currently updating our equalities monitoring form so that it is in line with current standards of good practice. If you are planning to undertake equality monitoring, please contact Melissa Nalubwama-Mukasa.
