Equality impact assessments
When new policies are drawn up the council must ensure equality issues are considered. See past Equality Impact Assessments.
Dorset councils are committed to delivering fair and accessible services to all people in Dorset. Carrying out equality impact assessments allows to improve the way we deliver our services.
