Equality Impact Assessment Support

Tai Pawb has a wealth of experience in delivering equality impact assessment support to housing providers in Wales.

“Assessing impact, responding to the challenge, making a difference”

An Equality Impact Assessment (EQIA) is a process:

  • That enables you to actively think about the impact of decisions, policies, practices and service areas on protected groups/ characteristics.
  • That is informed by the gathering of evidence to help identify potential barriers and impacts on protected groups/ characteristics.
  • That enables you to identify and remove potential barriers and negative impacts through developing actions in response.
  • Helps you prevent discrimination, comply with the public sector equality duties and when carried out effectively lead to service improvements.
