Equality Objectives 2016-2020

The public sector equality duty requires Bedford Borough Council to develop and publish equality objectives. 

The Council has identified five equality objectives that it will be focusing on for 2016-2020. We believe this to be a proportionate response to help support delivery of the Council's priorities that are outlined in the Corporate Plan 2016-2020. The objectives have been developed to help make improvements in our policy development, service delivery, employment and how we allocated resources.

  • Community Mapping - develop an improved level of understanding of Bedford Borough's diverse communities and their needs through research, data gathering and equality mapping.
  • Community Engagement - improve community engagement and secure its role in the development and delivery of services.
  • Serving Residents Effectively - delivery of accessible services that respond appropriately to different needs and customer feedback.
  • Workforce Development - improve workforce data and address barriers to employment for equality groups underrepresented in the workforce.
  • Organisational Values - to develop the culture of the Council so all employees are able to demonstrate commitment to the principles of equality in carrying out their roles, both in the workplace and in the delivery of services.
