Equality screening reports

  • Screening and analysis of our policies

    We use an equality impact assessment (EQIA) to do a thorough and systematic analysis of each of our policies. These assessments can improve our work by making sure we promote equality. When developing policies, plans and strategies, we publish policy-screening reports that consider rural needs.

     

  • Equality categories

    When assessing each policy, we refer to the nine equality categories defined in Section 75:

    • religious belief
    • political opinion
    • racial group
    • age
    • marital status
    • sexual orientation
    • gender
    • disability
    • dependency

    The EQIA determines if our policy has any negative impact on any of the nine categories and decides on an alternative to achieve the promotion of equality of opportunity.

    Section 75 is in the Northern Ireland Act 1998.

  • How to request screening reports and impact assessments

    When we analyse and screen our policies, we publish the information we collect in screening outcome reports and equality impact assessments. Our reports are available on request by email. To request our reports and equality impact assessments, contact the Equality and Diversity officer by email equality@belfastcity.gov.uk or telephone 028 9027 0663.
