Identifying differential impact

Identifying the different impacts our activities have on different groups of people is the central focus of Equality Impact Assessment.

In order to do this, we need to find out:

  • What do the people affected / involved tell us about these impacts?
  • What do we know about the different life circumstances and needs of the people affected / involved?
  • What data do we have to help us work out where the gaps are (i.e. equalities monitoring data)?
  • What do we currently do to meet people’s needs?
