Equality impact assessments ensure that our policies, services and legislation do not discriminate against anyone and that, where possible, we promote equality of opportunity. The equality impact assessment is a systematic and evidence-based tool, which enables us to consider the likely impact of their work on different groups of people. Completion of equality impact assessments is a legal requirement under race, disability and gender equalities legislation.
Equality impact assessments on offender management projects and policies will be published on the prisons, probation and parole service websites.
The full versions of the equality impact assessments are available from our equality, diversity and human rights division, which can also provide the information in alternative formats:
