The PHA is fully committed to equal opportunities and this section focuses on our responsibilities as a public body in Northern Ireland.
Under Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998 there is a legal requirement for public authorities to consider the possible impact of all their decisions on nine specified equality categories and also how to promote equality of opportunity and good relations in all areas of our work.
We have to consider how to promote equality of opportunity in relation to the following nine equality categories:
- religious belief;
- sexual orientation
- political opinion
- racial group
- disability (those with a disability and those without)
- dependency (those with dependants and those without)
- marital status.
