Equality Impact Assessments

An Equality Impact Assessment (EIA) is used as a way of checking that our services are not excluding anyone. They help us make sure that the service we provide reflects the needs of our residents and the local community.
What is an equality impact assessment and why do we do them?

An Equality Impact Assessment or "EIA" is a way to make sure that individuals and teams at Solon think carefully about the likely impact of a policy, strategy or project on different groups of people.

We want to be able to make sure that none of our policies or initiatives unwittingly discriminate against any particular group of people;

We want to make sure that there is no discrimination on the grounds of ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, religion or disability when delivering our landlord services;

We want to identify any unmet needs for particular groups of people;

We want to provide a basis to improve services where appropriate.

We do Equality Impact Assessments on:

New or revised policies, strategies or procedures;

Proposals to fund or develop new housing and improvement programmes and planning decisions;

Major investment decisions;

Major recruitment, staffing initiatives or restructures;

Local or group-wide initiatives and projects;

How are these monitored?

The equality impact assessments and timetable are monitored by the Equality Champions group. Residents have attended these meetings in the past but we have not yet got a regular resident member.

How can I get involved in equality impact assessments?

If you are a resident or a stakeholder and are interested in helping us assess the impact of decisions and changes on equality then please contact Rebecca Bellingham on 0117 9167792, e-mail on rebecca_bellingham@solonswha.co.uk or write to Rebecca at Solon's main address.
