'Addressing the Legacy of Northern Ireland's Past'

On 11th May, The Northern Ireland Office launched a public consultation entitled 'Addressing the Legacy of Northern Ireland's Past'. They are keen to reach as broad a range of people in Northern Ireland as possible and this includes reaching out to those who live in rural areas who were affected by the Troubles, those who continue to be impacted by the legacy of the past and those who have an interest in how the proposals to address that legacy should be shaped for the future. To that end, the NIO would very much welcome rural input into this consultation.

The documentation can be accessed on the NIO website at www.gov.uk/nio and this includes more accessible summary and easy read documentation to assist as many people as possible access and engage with the consultation. Support is also available through a number of groups which are signposted in the documentation, namely Victims and Survivors Service and the key advocacy and support groups that they support, as well as the Commissioner for Victims and Survivors.
