Equality Impact Assessments (EIA)
What is an EIA ‘screening' and why do we do them?
An Equality Impact Assessment or ‘EIA' is a is a way to make sure that individuals and teams at Chevin 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 undertake Equality Impact Assessment ‘screenings' on:
- Any new policies / strategies or procedures
- Proposals to fund or develop new housing and improvement programmes and planning decisions
- Major investment decisions
- Major recruitment / staffing initiatives
- staffing restructures
- Local or group-wide initiatives and projects
- When we review any existing policies / strategies.
