Norfolk County Council consultation on equality, diversity and inclusion

Closed 23 Feb 2023

Opened 3 Nov 2022


Norfolk County Council aims for Norfolk to be one of the highest performing counties in the country - creating jobs and opportunities for the people of Norfolk and cherishing our environment, countryside, and heritage.

Above all – we want to empower our residents and communities to be in control of their lives, participate in local decision-making and help themselves, and support those most in need.

We have a legal duty under the Equality Act 2010 to promote equality of opportunity for our residents and families in Norfolk.

We must think carefully about what will deliver the best results for all with our limited budget, so every three years we prioritise common-sense actions to improve equality, diversity, and inclusion in our services and communities

We know the work we do can affect people differently. We also know some people find it more difficult to use our services, and some people don’t have lots of opportunities to talk to us about the things that are important to them.

For this reason, we are reaching out to a diverse range of people to find out what they think about life in Norfolk and our services.

We want to understand more about your experiences and ask you questions about what you think may improve your life and make our services better overall. The findings of this survey will help us decide our equality, diversity and inclusion priorities for the next three years.

The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete and is available in other languages and as hard copy.  If you would like this survey in another language, please telephone 01603 989946 or email:

The survey does include some sensitive questions. Please be as honest as you feel able to be but remember all the questions are optional so only answer the questions you feel comfortable with.

What happens next

We will publish the findings from this survey as part of our new Services and Communities Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Plan for 2023 – 2026.
