Delivering equality

Learn how the council is meeting its duties under the Equality Act

North Devon Council has adopted an Equality Strategy which sets out the equality objectives for 2023 to 2027.


Equality Strategy

As an employer and deliverer of services, North Devon Council is committed to eliminate unlawful discrimination, promoting equal opportunities and fostering good relations between people from all communities. This Strategy sets out our commitment for progressing equality over the next four years.

The Strategy outlines our equality objectives, describes how we will fulfil our moral, social and legal obligations and what we will do to make North Devon a place where people get along with each other and treat each other with dignity and respect.

The Strategy covers inequality in terms of age, disability, gender reassignment (transgender/trans), marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation and is aimed at those who live, work in and visit the district, as well as elected Councillors and employees of the Council.
