Other reasons / organisations consulted

The council’s Equality Impact Assessment guidance recognises a number of groups who may suffer disadvantage in addition to those with protected characteristics as identified by the Equality Act 2010. One of these groups is the armed forces community. The Covenant itself and the work of the Armed Forces Covenant Steering Group seek to ensure through effective partnership working that service personnel, those who have previously served, and the armed forces community do not face disadvantage as a result of their service. The initiatives outlined in this annual report all seek to benefit Stockport’s armed forces community.
