The characteristics of Sedgemoor as a district are set out within other pages on the website and included within the Research and Information report below. Please see Local Area Data for further information.
The Specific Duties require that we publish equality information, in the first instance by 31st January 2012 and at least annually thereafter.
In this first year Sedgemoor has produced a general overview Research and Information report which sets:
The Research and Information report brings together details of the engagement undertaken from a range of sources including locally gathered information, countywide and regional work as well. Working with partners from across the county, we have decided to have a collective webpage hosted by Somerset County Council where all engagement, consultation and research reports can be found in central location. As further work is undertaken and completed, reports will be added as will reports that are at a county, regional and national level.
Sedgemoor has always been committed to being open about the profile of our workforce and has reported through the quarterly performance reports (can we build a link in here?) a breakdown of our workforce including total numbers employed, gender split, disability and ethnicity split and information about people leaving the council. With the requirements of Specific Duties, we have expanded the information that has been reported and the attached report gives a broader overview of workforce profile. As with the Equality Information that we have published above, we will refine the profile over the course of 2012.
