It is no secret that the public sector is having to review the way it delivers services to reduce budgets. ImpactEquality, our online equality impact assessment tool has again proved to be an invaluable resource in assessing the implications of this restructuring. Often it is the most disadvantaged who most affected so a prompt and robust assessment is required. The tool is enabling front line staff to quickly produce a first draft assessment to secure compliance and at the same time highlight any further data collection or consultation required.
“Easy to use, supports group working, good reporting and comprehensive”.
Version 2.0 of the tool, fully compliant with the Equality Act 2010, will be available shortly. www.impactequality.co.uk
