    How robust are your equality information and objectives? 

    Did you know that voluntary organisations can challenge you and hold you to account on how you are meeting your duties to publish equality objectives and equality information? For example, did you know that voluntary organisations can alert the Equality and Human Rights Commission about concerns if they believe that you are not to be meeting your legal duties, and can apply for a judicial review?

    The equality and diversity forum (EDF) have published a number of updated fact sheets on the Equality Act and the public sector equality duty. Although written for voluntary organisations, organisations such as universities, colleges and independent training providers will find these useful as they explain how voluntary organisations can challenge and hold organisations to account in meeting their legal duties.

    You can download the guide about the Equality Act here

    The guide on the public sector equality duty includes information on challenging organisations about their published equality objectives and equality information. You can download this guide here

    The guide on the meaning of ‘due regard’ uses case law information to explain and clarify the meaning of this term. You can download this guide here

    And finally there is a guide that provides a useful glossary of terms, which you can download here
