Single equality scheme 2012-2015
This Scheme has been reviewed and updated in line with new
legislative requirements. This Scheme provides information on the
arrangements that we have in place to meet the requirements of the
Equality Act 2010, the general equality duty and the specific
duties. This Scheme includes our equality and diversity priorities
and objectives. It is supported by an action plan which covers the
9 protected characteristics. This action plan is currently being
reviewed and updated and will be published shortly.
The new public sector equality duty protects people from
discrimination on the basis of certain characteristics which are
known as protected characteristics. There are 9 protected
characteristics: age, disability, gender reassignment, race,
marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, religion or
belief, sex (gender), and sexual orientation.
