These pages provide information aimed at supporting providers of drug treatment services to meet the requirements of the Equality Act 2010.
The Equality Act 2010
The Equality Act 2010 aims to harmonise the previous legislation alongside the introduction of new provisions around ensuring clarity over the effects of discrimination and defining which social groups are specifically protected.
Providers of drug treatment services will need to assess how their policies will impact on equality including the publication of evidence that an equality analysis has been undertaken.
