Public Sector Equality Duties

Public Sector Equality Duties

These are positive duties on public bodies to promote equality and work to eliminate discrimination on grounds of race, disability and gender.

For example:
• All public bodies take steps to promote equality on grounds of race, disability and gender. This might include having a specific scheme related to this, as well as an action plan and annual report on progress towards equality.

HOWEVER the Equality Bill presented to the UK Parliament in 2009 is likely to extend these duties  – for further information see www.equalities.gov.uk
