Equality Monitoring and Impact Assessment

​​​Equality Monitoring​

In line with the Wales Specific Equalities Duties, Cardiff Council has a specific duty to make arrangement to collect, assess and report on evidence and information that it has.


One way in which we do this is by carrying out equality monitoring of our service provision.


As a council it is vital that we know the make-up of the community so we can ensure our services are suitable and accessible for all.

Equality Impact Assessments

The Equality Act 2010 (“The Act”) sets a General Duty out that as a public body within Wales, the City of Cardiff Council is required to have due regard in its decision making processes (including financial decisions) to three factors:
  • To eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation,
  • To advance equality of opportunity, and
  • To foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic (age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, religious belief and non-belief, race, sex, sexual orientation and Welsh Language) and those who do not. (Equality Act 2010).


Duties within the Act require that public authorities demonstrate that the financial decisions they make are carried out in a fair, transparent and accountable way and consider the needs and the rights of different members of the community.
The specific equality duties of the Act set out that a local authority needs to:
  • Make appropriate arrangement for assessing the likely impact of its policies and practices on its ability to comply with the General Duty;
  • Monitor these impacts; and
  • Publish reports in respect of any assessment.
