Equality Analysis

Equality Analysis is a tool to help consider the effect of activities on different groups of people and to make sure that policies, services and decisions work well for everyone. It involves considering evidence and engaging with user groups to understand impacts and experiences.


Equality Analysis informs good decision making and can help to identify unintended consequences and to pinpoint where changes are needed to promote equality. It is a bit like looking at the detail of policies through an ‘equality lens’ to properly understand the potential impact on different groups of people.
