Achieve Equality in Cumbria Project

 In Cumbria there are six district councils, which provide a number of services including, benefits, housing, waste collection, planning, street cleaning, parks maintenance and licensing. 
Since 2008 the county council and all six district councils have been working together on a project called Achieving Equality in Cumbria. The project aims to make sure that:
  • All local authorities have a clear understanding of the equality priorities in the local area
  • Councillors and senior managers promote equality and good community relations
  • There is a consistent approach to consultation and engagement with under-represented groups
  • That Equality Impact Assessments are shared across authorities and consistent adjustments provided
  • That staff have the skills to address diversity, and local authorities have the right policies in place to meet their legal requirements as employers. 

Councils working together

The District and county councils in Cumbria are working together to eliminate discrimination and promote equality so all people in Cumbria have fair access to services. Working together reduces and shares the cost of providing services and ensures that people who are protected or vulnerable have equal access to services.
