Equality Outcomes 2021-2025

Closed 22 Dec 2020

Opened 3 Nov 2020


The Equality Act 2010 requires all public bodies (such as councils and the health service) to publish equality outcomes at least every four years. Equality outcomes aim to achieve specific and identifiable improvements in people’s life chances, eliminate discrimination and foster good relations.

Working in partnership - Edinburgh, West Lothian and Midlothian Councils (including their education authorities and Midlothian’s licensing board), NHS Lothian, Midlothian Health and Social Care Partnership and East Lothian Integrated Joint Board have developed a set of draft equality themes and outcomes. These are based on research and evidence from different sources and on conversations with services and organisations that work to help and support people.

Each organisation will ultimately be responsible for their own outcomes and action plan. However, we hope to identify common outcomes that we can work on together. There may also be opportunities for us to work towards the same equality theme but focus on different actions to achieve it, depending on our differing remits, geographies, resources and your feedback. 

We want people with a variety of life and personal experiences to share their thoughts on the draft themes and outcomes. Your views will help shape and influence the development of the final outcomes and help us to agree actions that can make a difference to people's lives.

Paper copies of the consultation document are also available. Please contact Equality and Rights Network or call Euan on 0750 473 3986 to arrange a copy of the survey to be sent to you.
