Equality Monitoring Survey: Background

Creative Carbon Scotland puts equality at the heart of its activity, and we aim to acknowledge and reflect the diversity in Scotland today in all our work.   


To monitor the type of applications we receive and the work we do we need to collect information that does not directly relate to our assessment of your application. We include questions on age, gender, ethnicity, disability, and sexual orientation - all defined as ‘protected characteristics’ in The Equality Act 2010. We also include a question on Gaelic language.


Providing this information assists us in our reporting in line with the above act and will help us improve our services. In providing your completed response you are giving explicit consent for us to use this data for statistical reporting. The data is managed confidentially, is not personally attributable and is processed in accordance with the Data Protection Act.


If you do not know some of the information or if you prefer not to provide it, you can fill in the 'Prefer not to answer' box.
