Single Equality Scheme

The Single Equality Scheme 2008 – 2011 sets out Cabinet Office's commitment to meet our responsibilities under the three Public Equality Duties of Race, Disability and Gender during the next 3 years.

The scheme explains the actions we have taken and will continue taking to:

  • assess the impact of our business on race, disability and gender;
  • promote equality through our work;
  • promote positive attitudes towards and good relations between all groups of people; and
  • eliminate any harassment or unlawful discrimination.

In addition to promoting race, disability and gender equality, Cabinet Office has also extended the principles of the equality duties to age, gender identity, religion / belief, and sexual orientation, and the Scheme also makes mention of these equality strands.

The Single Equality Scheme replaces previous individual race, gender and disability equality schemes.
