Developing Aberdeenshire Equality Outcomes

There are laws in place to protect people from unfair discrimination due to their protected characteristics (e.g. age, sex, race).

To help with this, every four years Aberdeenshire Council needs to set equality outcomes, which state how the council aims to achieve improvements in people's life opportunities. The outcomes also apply to the Aberdeenshire Licensing Boards and to the Aberdeenshire Education Authority. The equality outcomes are used to measure the council's progress in making Aberdeenshire a fairer and more equitable place.

Many thanks for helping develop proposals for new Equality Outcomes for Aberdeenshire.

We have taken on board the feedback from the community survey, a Citizens’ Panel Survey, lived experience gathered from conversations that were held with a variety of community groups with protected characteristics, and representations made through formal consultation. This informed our proposed equality outcomes.

On 23rd September, Aberdeenshire Council agreed the six equality outcomes for the next 4 years. Work is underway to finalise the action plan that will help to deliver these outcomes. These will be published on the council website in due course.

Information on proposed outcomes is available using the following link: Proposed Outcomes: Context

Information on feedback received during the engagement is now available to view and representations received through the public consultation are available online.
