Equality and Diversity

Achieving equality and valuing diversity in West Berkshire

We think that everyone deserves to live in a community where people get along with each other, where no-one feels excluded and where everyone has a chance to play a full part in local life.

Our Icon for pdf equality objectives [63KB]  set out the areas of our work where we are focusing our efforts to achieve this.

We review these areas annually. Icon for pdf View the Equality Objectives Annual Report 2016-17 [592KB]

Equality Impact Assessments

The Icon for pdf Equality Impact Assessment Guidance [572KB]  is used to understand what effect our decisions will have on people with different needs. It allows us to minimise any possible disadvantages that might result from our decisions, whilst being sure that we still achieve our aims.

We hold a record of the equality impact assessments that we have already performed - these can be found using the search box at the top of the page, or by visiting our committee pages to browse manually.

Equality Policy

The Icon for pdf Equality Policy [254KB]   sets out our vision and commitment to equality of opportunity and respect for diversity. This is part of our role as a provider of services to the people who live, work and visit West Berkshire, as a significant employer in the local economy and in our community leadership role.
