Croydon Council takes pride in its actions on equalities and inclusion

The annual report assessing how the Council has implemented its Equalities and Inclusion policy is being finalised at the Cabinet meeting on 19 January.

The report sets out what the Council regards as its main actions, good practices and achievements. It provides a template against which activists and organisations with  equality and inclusion interests can assess what improvements they could consider lobbying for in the next stage of the development of the Council’s equalities and inclusion policy.

‘The Council’s intention is to develop an interim Equality and Inclusion Policy in March 2015 as well as more detailed analysis related to the borough profile in the summer 2015. These new equality documents will be aligned with the new outcome framework Ambitious for Croydon. In addition, following the recommendations arising from Croydon’s Opportunity and Fairness Commission, a final Equality and Inclusion Policy will be produced containing a set of new four year equality objectives in line with the Council’s statutory duties to publish these by 1st April 2016. (Para. 5.2)
