Creating a fairer Britain
This section provides examples of public authorities that have used the equality duty in their employment, services or policy making. Some are drawn from initiatives which were put in place under the previous equality duties.
The case studies are divided by sector as well as by the type of action taken. There is also a new section showing how public authorities have used the public sector equality duties to achieve tangible benefits.
These examples show public authorities the variety of benefits the equality duty can deliver when used in the right way.
By sharing these examples the Commission is not making a judgment about whether a particular public authority is meeting any or all of their legal obligations.
