Equality Impact Assessments (EIAs)
Swansea Council, like all other public authorities in Wales, has a legal duty to assess all its proposed functions, policies and procedures for their impact on protected groups as defined in the Equality Act 2010.
- gender reassignment
- marriage and civil partnership
- pregnancy and maternity
- religion or belief (including non-belief)
- sexual orientation
We use EIAs to meet this legal duty. Our EIA process also covers other areas including:
- Welsh language
- United Nation Convention on the Right of the Child (UNCRC)
- Poverty and social exclusion
- Community Cohesion
Our EIA process forms part of our corporate decision making protocol, and all completed EIA reports are published alongside the relevant corporate report at: https://democracy.swansea.gov.uk/ieDocHome.aspx?bcr=1&LLL=0?Lang=eng.
