Equality Objectives

Background

The Equality Act 2010 introduced a new Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED).

The general duty requires public bodies to pay due regard, in the exercise of their functions, to the following three aims:

The PSED is supported by a set of specific duties which are intended to help public bodies to carry out the above aims in a way that is tangible, transparent and accountable.  One of these is to prepare and publish at least one equality objective.
