Equality Objectives 2020-2024

The Council is committed to working with our residents, businesses and partners to make sure that Warrington is accessible, welcoming and provides opportunities for everybody.

This vision is set out in our equality objectives 2020-2024 which are:

  • Provide opportunities to improve life chances
  • Work with our partners and businesses to improve accessibility and tackle discrimination
  • Promote and foster an inclusive working environment for our workforce

These are an integral part of the organisation and link closely with the Council’s Corporate Strategy. They guide the work we carry out and show our commitment to challenging inequality and promoting a fair and inclusive town.

Public Sector Equality Duty Report

Knowing Our Community and Our Workforce 2018-2019

Collection and analysis of equality monitoring information enables us to design and deliver services that meet the needs of local people and support our workforce effectively. This document contains information on who accesses our services, workforce profile, equality achievements and challenges and gender pay gap information. This document helps us to demonstrate how we are meeting the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) under the Equality Act 2010 which requires us to publish a range of equality monitoring information relating to people who are affected by our services and our workforce.
