Equality and Diversity Strategy (2010-2013)
The Council’s Equality and Diversity Strategy (2010 -2013) outlines how we propose to develop and promote equality and diversity within the Council and across the district. The strategy set out the key priorities, which were agreed after consultation:
- Promoting Positive Attitudes
- Participation and Inclusion – Working Together
- Access to Information
- Access to Services
- Employment and Training
To meet our equality duties we will regularly review the Strategy.
Please tell us what you think about the existing priorities and what you think should be the main equality focus for the next few years using the feedback form.
The Community Strategy
The Bradford District Community Strategy sets out the most important things we can do to meet the significant challenges facing the District over the next three years. Its outcomes, aims and objectives will contribute to realising the ambitions of our 2020 Vision, building on what we have already achieved.
As partners, we have identified three priorities that have the ability to powerfully transform the district, as they focus capacity and resources to effect the biggest change possible:
- Regenerating our City Centre and drive economic growth across the district;
- Raising our educational attainment and supporting our children & young people to reach their full potential; and
- Developing our skills base to equip people with skills for work.
The Council publishes its priorities as an organisation in the Corporate Plan, and shows how it will contribute to the Community Strategy. The current Corporate Plan is available via the below.
The Corporate Plan will be refreshed by April 2012.
Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)
The JSNA is a statutory document, produced jointly by the Council and NHS Bradford and Airedale . It is a systematic method of collecting and presenting information about the current and future health, social care and wellbeing needs of the district. It presents the “Big Picture” of Bradford’s population and the inequalities that exist locally, and is a tool that can be used to promote equality across the full range of services that improve health and well being.
It is intended to:
- Provide evidence to support prioritisation and decision making;
- Enable the health and well being needs of specific populations within the district to be predicted;
- Enable a pathway from an identified need to a specified commissioning activity to be defined.
In summary the JSNA is intended to inform:
- What we are doing
- What we should be doing
- What we should do differently
