Equality Information

We collect and use a wide range of data to help us in our equalities work. This includes demographic information about the people who live and work in Devon and Somerset, which groups of people are more likely to be at risk of fire, based on incident and other data and information about our employees, such as how many male and female employees we have and how many from Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups.

To provide an effective service, it is important that we understand the impact of our policies and working practices on different people and that we ensure we are meeting our duty to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations. We use the data that we collect when developing services to identify key issues, assess our performance and tailor our services to meet the needs of particular people.

We are adding data from new sources all the time, but here are some examples of the information we use in our work:

Absence Management and Health of the Organisation (see HRMD Committee minutes and agenda)

Annual Recruitment Diversity Report 2019 (PDF)

Community Data (PDF)
