Human Rights and Equality Duty

During 2020, in fulfilment of its public body obligations under Section 42 of the Human Rights and Equality Act 2014, the Regulator of the National Lottery conducted a detailed exercise to identify the human rights and equality issues that the work of the Regulator either directly or indirectly affects or is affected by. This exercise included a review of how the Regulator of the National Lottery interacts with the public and stakeholders and how we work within our own organisation.

Several policies were found to be already in place to address issues that could arise. As part of its regular review of its policies and procedures, the Regulator of the National Lottery ensures that each policy review is conducted in full consideration of the need to promote equality of opportunity and treatment, and protection of human rights of both staff and stakeholders.
