Equality in Glasgow: Glasgow’s Public Sector Bodies and the Equality Duties


This research report explores trends in the performance of the specific equality duties in Glasgow, featuring key learning points and recommendations for future practice.

On 30th April 2013, Scotland’s public bodies were required to publish the first set of documentation demonstrating their compliance with the new Scottish specific equality duties set out in the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) (Scotland) Regulations 2012. In preparing and publishing these documents, a wide range of interpretations have been applied both in terms of compliance with the Regulations themselves and in following the non-statutory guidance which accompanies them. This first round of publication provides an ideal opportunity to compare practice across the public sector, highlight innovations and identify weaknesses.

This report takes a practical approach to exploring what can be learned from the equality duties documents published by Glasgow’s public sector organisations. It is hoped that our findings will inspire best practice in the implementation of the Scottish specific public sector equality duties, both in Glasgow and further afield.
