Equality, diversity and community cohesion

Norfolk County Council is committed to providing equality of opportunity and accessible services for everyone in Norfolk.

We have a duty under the Equality Act 2010 to promote equality of opportunity and eliminate discrimination for service users and staff, as well as fostering positive relationships between different communities.

We are undertaking a range of actions to promote equality across the different services we pay for and deliver, based on what residents have told us will make the most difference.

Our equality objectives for 2017-2020

For more information about these objectives, see the full report provided to Policy and Resources Committee on 27 March 2017.

On 31 January each year, we publish an annual report about our progress to promote equality and accessibility, as well as information about the diversity of our workforce.  You can access these annual reports below:
