We are consulting our community on our proposed equality objectives for the next four years.
Our Equality objectives survey, hosted by Survey Monkey, will take approximately 5 minutes to complete.
Your views are needed as they will help us to shape our future services and ways of working.
Newark and Sherwood District Council's public commitment of how it plans to meet the duties placed upon it by the equality legislation is set out in our Equality and diversity strategy 2016-2020 (PDF File, 883kb) We recognise the importance of fair treatment and equal access to our services and employment opportunities and believe that all equality issues should be included within one document so that they can be mainstreamed into policy formation and service delivery.
We are refreshing the strategy and have produced equality objectives to help us meet our equality duties and to bring about positive change. The objectives have been identified from an analysis of our services and will be the focus of our equality related work for the next four years.
Our proposed equality objectives are:
- In delivering the Council's priorities and themes, we will have due regard to equalities implications through leadership, partnership and organisational commitment
- To improve our services by better understanding our communities through the collection and analysis of information, and engaging with partners to share as appropriate
- To ensure our services are accessible to meet the needs of our citizens
- As an employer, promote an inclusive working environment to maintain and develop a modern and diverse workforce

Following the completion of the consultation, we will publish the findings on our website.
