This is the cover of Objectives and the equality duty: a guide for public authorities

This guide is one of a series written by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (the Commission) to explain how public authorities can meet the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 (the Act). The Act brought together all previous equality legislation in England, Scotland and Wales. The Act includes the public sector equality duty (the equality duty), which replaced the former duties relating to race, disability and gender equality. The equality duty came into force on 5 April 2011.
