Liverpool City Council Draft Equality Objectives 2016-2020 Consultation

Start date:  18th December 2015.
End date: 10th February 2016.

Liverpool City Council is committed to promoting equality of opportunity, celebrating and valuing diversity, eliminating unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation, and promoting good relations.

The council works to promote equality for all by reducing discrimination in employment and service delivery on the grounds, covered by the Equality Act 2010, of age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation.

The council also considers socio-economic status (poverty), care leavers, carers, armed force veterans and people with an offending history.

The draft objectives we are consulting on

We are reviewing our equality objectives for the next four years – from 2016 until 2020 – and want your views on them. These objectives should help ensure fairness for all and reinforce our commitment to tackling inequalities wherever they exist and to stop the unacceptable treatment of any person.

Under the overarching theme ‘a strong, diverse city built on fairness’, the draft 2016-2020 objectives are as follows:

  • Listen, involve and respond to local communities.
  • Strengthen our knowledge and understanding of our communities.
  • Consultative and accountable leadership making fair and transparent decisions.
  • A fair and inclusive employer.
  • Good quality accessible services, buildings and public spaces.


Read example measures of success for all the five objectives.

Health Watch

Measles outbreak declared on Merseyside

The Liverpool Primary Care Trust has released information of a measles outbreak on Merseyside. There are 13 confirmed and 16 suspected cases ranging in age from nine months to adults aged in their 20s. Six people, four children and two adults, required treatment in hospital. This compares to just one confirmed case on Merseyside in the first six weeks of 2011 and one in the corresponding period of 2010.

Parents are urged to ensure that their children are fully vaccinated. If in doubt about their child’s vaccination status they should ask their GP for advice.

GPs have been alerted and asked to report all cases.

Any person with symptoms of measles should:

•Stay away from school, nursery or work until four days have elapsed after the development of a rash.
•Telephone their GP for advice before attending GP surgeries, NHS walk-in centres or hospital A & E units. If it is necessary for a child or adult with measles to attend an NHS facility, the GP can telephone the facility in advance to make arrangements that will minimise the measles patient’s contact with other vulnerable patients.
• Avoid contact with pregnant women as they are more vulnerable to infection and measles is highly infectious.
Liverpool Primary Care Trust (PCT) has set up a telephone line for parents or indeed anyone seeking advice or information about measles. The number is 0151 296 7565.

Advice is also available from NHS Direct on 0845 4647.
