Equality Act 2010: The public sector Equality Duty

9 December 2010

Introduction

equality_duties

We consider that there needs to be greater clarity in the proposals on how public authorities should go about setting equality objectives, on transparency and on consultation and involvement of those affected. We would therefore like to see the Government strengthen these proposals in order to ensure that the specific duties can effectively support public authorities to meet an outcomes focused general duty, enable the Equality and Human Rights Commission and stakeholders to measure progress towards this goal and encourage real change and the delivery of better public services.
