Equality and diversity

Our approach to equality and diversity

Find out about the London Borough of Sutton’s commitment to equality and diversity and our objectives for 2019/20 - 2023/24.

Equality Impact Assessments

Equality Impact Assessments (EIA's) are a tool that the Council uses for assessing the possible impact (positive and negative) of the work we do.

Sutton Fairness Commission

The Sutton Fairness Commission provides advice to the Council on external equality and diversity issues and is a 'critical friend' for the Council to test the equality impact of its policies and decisions.  The Commission takes a borough wide, partnership view of equalities in line with the Sutton Plan.

Getting involved - community groups and organisations

We have a number of key Equality and Diversity groups and organisations operating in the borough who promote diversity and equal opportunity for Sutton residents.

Equalities data

Our Sutton DataCard presents an overview of equality and diversity data in the Borough. It also provides commentary on trends and comparison against London and England, and how the Council is, and will be, responding to trends with priorities, policies, programmes and activities.
