Equality Impact Assessment Toolkit

Investing in People, Culture and Leadership by providing good practice guidance, tools and improvements at a national level for implementation locally.

This section will hold a number of tools to support you in the delivery of an Equality Impact Assessment within your Fire and Rescue Service.

We recognise services may hold this template under a different title/name, and this has been recognised within the template to ensure services can continue to use the name that is familiar to them. We also know that services are at different stages of embedding impact assessments and hope the additional tools to be supplied over a period of time will support you.

The NFCC Equality Impact Assessment Initial Screening Tool will assist you to decide and evidence if a full Equality Impact Assessment is required.

The NFCC Equality Impact Assessment template is a way of systematically assessing the effects that a policy, project or decision is likely to have on different people within your fire & rescue service, and the communities it serves.

It can assist you to identify discrimination by analysing your policies, projects, practices, processes, procedures, services, and decisions, to make sure they do not discriminate or disadvantage people, and will help towards improving or promoting equality.
