As part of our Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998, equality duties, we are required to submit an equality scheme to the Equality Commission by 1st August 2013.

Our Scheme, which is based on a model scheme issued by the Equality Commission, is now presented for consultation.

At the same time, we have undertaken an audit of inequalities across all our functions, and developed an equality action plan to address the inequalities identified. We are also now consulting on our audit of inequalities and action plan.
