Northumberland County Council’s Equality Objectives

Public Sector Equality Duties

Public authorities are required to publish information to demonstrate their compliance with the general equality duty.

This includes, in particular, information to be published relating to people who share relevant protected characteristics that are:

  • affected by its policies and practices
  • information relating to its employees

The purpose of publishing equality information

Publishing equality information helps people to assess the equality performance of Northumberland County Council.

The information provides a clearer picture of how it complies with the general equality duty and will help to inform us when making decisions about the services it provides.

Northumberland County Council has produced its Public Sector Equality Objectives: 2012-2016. These can be viewed here.
