Equality Impact Assessments

As part of our processes to ensure that we promote equality and diversity across Bolton, we complete Equality Impact Assessments, which are used to identify the potential impacts of our policies, budgets and other key decisions before those decisions are made. These assessments support the council’s decision makers in making informed choices, and to plan actions which respect differences and address inequalities. This helps us to ensure that all sections of the community receive services appropriate to their needs, and that no-one is adversely affected in the way we deliver services.

Details of these Equality Impact assessments are published on the Council’s Committee Management Information System
