Monitoring people by equalities group is an essential tool we use to identify inequalities both in service delivery and in employment.
This enables us to take action to reduce and eliminate differences in uptake/representation/outcomes experienced by different groups of service users and employees and to improve our services for the benefit of Bristol’s communities.
