Equalities impact assessment for the local assembly programme

Below is an equalities impact assessment (EIA) for the local assemblies programme.
Develop your area with NCIL funding

We've launched a scheme to allocate money from developers to your local area. Tell us your priorities for improving your area.

Local assembly meetings cancelled

We have started to hold local assemblies again.

The assessment shows areas of strength and weakness for the local assembly programme about equality issues.

The programme, by its very nature, contributes to community cohesion. People from all equality groups can help shape their area and make decisions about how to improve it.

As with any engagement programme, some groups are better represented than others. The local assembly programme makes every effort to engage with minority and under-represented groups.

This EIA will help continue and focus that work, and ensure assembly meetings are accessible to everyone.
