Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED)

YHEA007 1835

The Equality Act 2010 includes a public sector equality duty (PSED) requiring public bodies to declare their compliance with the general and specific duties on an annual basis. 

For the general duty we need to show how we are having due regard to the need to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act 2010
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.


Protected characteristics – in the context of the PSED – are defined as:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender reassignment
  • Marriage and civil partnership (to eliminate discrimination)
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Race – this includes ethnic or national origins, colour or nationality
  • Religion or belief – this includes lack of belief
  • Sex (male & female)
  • Sexual orientation

For the specific duty we are required to:

  • Publish information to demonstrate compliance with the general duty
  • Publish data on the make-up of our workforce
  • Publish data on those affected by our policies and procedures
  • Publish one or more equality objectives covering a 4 year period
