DfE Draft Equality Scheme, Audit of Inequalities and Disability Action Plan

Closed 16 Apr 2019

Opened 18 Feb 2019


Statutory equality and disability duties require all Northern Ireland Departments to produce:

  • an Equality Scheme, setting out how we will fulfill our statutory equality duties;
  • a Disability Action Plan, setting out how we will promote positive attitudes towards disaled people and encourage their participation in public life;
  • and an Audit of Inequalities and Action Plan, setting out inequalities relative to our functions and the measures which will be taken to address them. 

This consultation seeks your views on drafts of all three documents for the Department for the Economy.

A Privacy Notice, which sets out what we will do with information that you provide to us, is contained within the introduction section of the survey.

What Happens Next

The views you have provided on the draft documents will help to inform final drafts for submission to the Equality Commission.
