Have Your Say on Equality

By bellmannews / March 12, 2021

From Aberdeenshire Council –

Aberdeenshire Council are in the process of developing new equality aims for 2021-25, focusing on ‘protected characteristics’ which can apply to all of us, for example age, sex, race, disability, religion, and sexual orientation. Developing equality aims is something that local authorities are required to do.
 
An important step in this process is getting the views of Aberdeenshire residents and identifying what areas we need to focus on improving people’s life opportunities.  The pandemic has had a significant impact on all of our lives and this will need to be considered in our planning to ensure we support those who need it most. We also need to report on our progress in making improvements since 2019.
 
It would be greatly appreciated if you could take a few minutes to complete our survey and give your views – https://engage.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/equalities-2021-2025
 
The survey is open until 14th March.  There will also be some other ways to contribute and be involved, for example, you can submit a story of your experience, or after the survey, potentially be involved further as part of a community conversation.
 
Support is available for putting your views forward if you need it.  If you have any queries, please contact our Engagement & Equalities team on 01467 538029 or email equalities@aberdeenshire.gov.uk
