The responses you provide to the questions set out in this Equality Monitoring Form are required for the following purpose:
Under the Equality Act 2010, Dundee City Council (DCC) is required to ensure equality of access to its services. DCC is therefore required to monitor the protected characteristics of those who use council services. 'Protected characteristics' are defined in the Equality Act, and include the categories set out in the questions in the form above.
DCC is required under the Equality Act to report the data in an anonymised form (which does not identify any individual) to certain organisations prescribed under the Equality Act, which include Scottish Government and Equality and Human Rights Commission (collectively "Equalities Authorities"). The Equalities Authorities are required to use this anonymised information in accordance with the Equality Act.
This form will be securely disposed of immediately after the information has been entered into a secure recording system.
Thank you for completing this form
