In response to the Northern Ireland Act 1998, the Loughs Agency has drawn up an Equality Scheme, which sets out the Agency’s commitment to “having due regard to the need to promote equality of opportunity” and “having regard to the desirability of promoting good relations.” This document also establishes a plan for ensuring that equality issues are mainstreamed in the Agency’s decision making.
In order to help achieve these objectives, the Agency will, as appropriate, undertake screening, equality impact assessments and monitoring to establish the impact of our policies.
The Revised Equality Scheme, which was approved by the Equality Commission on 27th February¬†2013, is available free of charge in a range of formats upon request.
