UPDATE: Some of the restrictions on emailing have been lifted

We are pleased so say that we are now able to receive some external emails. Until we are completely confident that our servers are not at risk, external emails that include a link or an attachment will continue to be quarantined.  

Emails from us are not affected by the block that is in place, so you should still receive contact from us in this way, although it may take slightly longer than normal. We will let you know when these issues are resolved.

If you need us urgently, please call us.

Equalities monitoring

What is equality monitoring?

Equality monitoring is simply gaining an understanding of whether a service is performing well for all customers. It involves collecting, storing and using information about the different protected characteristics of our customers.

When you use council services or take part in consultations, fill in certain forms or other activities where you have contact with us you may be asked if you would complete an 'Equality Monitoring Form'. You are then asked to complete a number of questions about 'you', such as your age, sex, ethnicity, religion or belief and sexual orientation.

We collect this information to identify which communities or groups you might belong to. All information is confidential and data protection rules will apply.

Stonewall have produced a leaflet to explain 10 reasons why you should fill in those funny monitoring box things at the end of forms.Opens new window
