Consultation

Consultation on the Equality Impact Assessments for the 2014-2020 Structural Funds Programmes in Wales

The purpose of the EIAs is to assess whether the implementation of the Programmes will have an adverse impact on people of different equality groups. The EIAs also highlight opportunities for the Programmes to promote equality across the different equality groups.
Start of consultation: 25/02/2013
End of consultation: 20/05/2013

The focus is on the following equality groups:

  • Age;
  • Disability
  • Gender;
  • Marriage and Civil Partnership
  • Pregnancy and Maternity
  • Race and Ethnicity
  • Religion
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Transgender; and
  • Welsh Language

How we will use the EIAs

We will use the EIAs in the following ways:

  • To assess whether the implementation of the Programme Strategies and Priorities will have a differential impact for particular groups of people;
  • Inform how equality issues should be considered in any redesign of the Programmes;
  • Inform how equality issues should be considered in the shaping of implementation arrangements;
  • Identify opportunities to promote equality in the Programmes; and
  • Propose solutions for elimination of any negative impacts which may be identified through the assessments.

WEFO values responses received as part of the EIA Consultation process.
