Diversity impact assessments

Diversity Impact Assessments (DIA's) are helping to ensure we are meeting our plans to make Swindon an equal society. These DIA's recognise and respect different needs, situations and goals. They also remove the barriers that limit what people can do and can be.

There are four parts to a DIA

  1. Being really clear about what we are trying to do
  2. Finding out who is using our services or who is likely to use them 
  3. Finding out if any groups are being excluded from what we do
  4. Making changes to make our services fairer

All council and cabinet reports refer to a relevant DIA. This is so we can make sure that our legal equality duties are considered when we make decisions.

DIA's are useful in helping us take stock and make positive change. We carry them out in every service area.

We are required to make the outcomes of DIA's publicly available. You can view them below:
