Overview

This consultation seeks your views on the Council’s Audit of Inequalities and Equality Action Plan.

The Council’s Equality Scheme includes a commitment to gather information about inequalities in Belfast which we can address through our functions. This is called an ‘Audit of Inequalities’.

Based on this, we’ve put together an Equality Action Plan. This sets out the actions we propose to address inequality in the functions we’re responsible for like economic development, waste management and parks services and contributes to our compliance with Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998.

In developing the Equality Action Plan we have listened to key stakeholders through engagement with local communities and organisations working to address inequalities, so that we can better understand their needs. The Equality Action Plan contains some of the key priorities from our Corporate Plan, which will have the biggest impact on inequalities. Our Corporate Plan is a reflection of what people in Belfast have told us they want and the type of leadership they feel the city needs. It takes the priorities of the Belfast Agenda, the citywide Community Plan, and sets out the ways in which the council will deliver these to grow a sustainable, inclusive economy and equitable society. To fulfil our responsibilities, our Corporate Plan not only ensures we deliver the day to day services which the people of Belfast rely upon; we stretch ourselves through a series of strategic priorities to ensure we positively affect the lives of everyone in Belfast

This twelve week consultation period allows us to present the draft actions and outcomes we have designed to begin to address those needs.
