The Government considers the equality impacts of individual policies on those with protected characteristics carefully and consistently, in line with both its legal obligations and its strong commitment to equality; and there are internal procedural requirements and support in place for ensuring that such considerations inform decisions taken by Ministers.

The Winter Economy Plan supports people, particularly groups at higher risk of unemployment due to the pandemic, including persons with a disability, young people and people from certain Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds, including across Birmingham and the West Midlands.
