Our regular performance monitoring includes performance against a number of equality indicators including:
- Percentage of adults with learning disabilities as primary support reason known to the Council in paid employment
- Percentage of adults with learning disabilities as primary support reason known to the Council in settled accommodation
- Achievement gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers achieving the expected level at KS2 (Level 4 and above in reading, writing and mathematics combined)
- Achievement gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers achieving the expected level at KS4
- Adults in contact with secondary mental health services in employment
- Adults in contact with secondary mental health services in settled accommodation
- Reduction in total police callouts for domestic violence victims within the MARAC cohort
- Number of properties where major disability adaptations have been completed
- Percentage of top 5% earners that are women
- Percentage of top 5% earners that are from black and minority ethnic communities
- Percentage of top 5% earners that have disability
- Minority ethnic communities staff as percentage of all staff
- Percentage of half day sessions missed due to total absence in local special schools
- Percentage of older people who were still at home 91 days after discharge from hospital into reablement/rehabilitation services
- Excess winter deaths index
In addition to these indicators we also regularly review and publish detailed information on:
- Our council housing resident profile and allocations of properties
- Our Attainment results
- Local health outcomes
- Domestic violence
- Hate crime
- Our residents survey. Good levels of community cohesion are suggested by the fact that in 2017, 89% of residents agreed that people of different backgrounds get on well together. Agreement with this statement, at 89%, is consistent with the 87% recorded in 2015, 85% recorded in 2013 and the 86% seen in 2011. Importantly, when looking at overall agreement levels no significant variations are evident by ethnicity. Nationally this is seen as a key measure of community cohesion.
Equality Impact Assessments
We also publish Equality Impact Needs Assessments (EINAs), which as part of their required analysis contain information on service user profiles by protected characteristic as such they are a good source of information on who uses our services.
All EINAs are published as part of Committee papers. This is to ensure their findings can be reviewed in context. Search for EINAs using the Committee Document search function.
To get a list of all EINAs completed type 'Equality Impact Needs Assessment' in the first box. Please note that prior to October 2016 this document was known as an ‘Equality Impact Assessment’, and this search term should be used. As this may return a large number so you may want to add additional criteria such as Committee or date parameters.
