Consultation with Equalities Stakeholders
We consult at least annually with stakeholders.
- We have consulted annually with stakeholders on our equality objectives to gather views about priority areas for action and to feed back on our performance. In 2011 we consulted on our self assessment for the Equality Framework for Local Government and our progress against our Single Equality Scheme 2010.
