The Health and Social Care Board has developed a draft Equality Scheme (based on a model scheme issued by the Equality Commission). This is in accordance with our equality duties as determined by Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998.
We have developed an Equality Action Plan, which is informed by the findings of an audit of inequalities across all our functions.
The purpose of undertaking the audit was to identify any inequalities that individuals within the Section 75 categories experience in relation to how we carry out our functions. The audit across all functions of the organisation was focussed on both services and employment
We are now seeking views on our Equality Scheme and Audit of Inequalities and Action Plan, and would be very interested in hearing from you. Details of how to respond can be found at the end of each document.
