The aim of the FRSEF is to help fire and rescue services integrate their commitments to promote equality and diversity into their day-to-day work.

The FRSEF is one of three self-assessment equality frameworks that have been developed by Local Government Association (LGA) for public sector organisations to assess their work on equality. The others are the Equality Framework for Local Government (EFLG) and the Social Housing Equality Framework (SHEF).
