Our Specific Equality and Diversity Duties

The Equality Act 2010 is supported by what are known as the specific duties. The specific duties require public bodies to publish information that helps make our organisation more transparent and give you the information you need to monitor our performance on equality.

The specific duties also require us to set and publish our equality objectives every four years. Our objectives and action plan can be found in our Single Equality Scheme 2010 - 2013 and summarised in our Annual Equality Report.

Fairness is also at the heart of the Council’s values as outlined in the Corporate Plan 2012 - 14 Standing up for Sheffield. We believe that everyone should get a fair chance to succeed in Sheffield. We recognise that some people and communities need extra help to reach their full potential and we will provide extra help where it is needed. We will also make sure that a ‘core offer’ of services is available to everyone in the city.

Tackling inequality is crucial to increasing fairness and social cohesion, reducing health problems, and helping people to have independence and control over their lives. It will underpin all that we do.
