Non-functioning Northern Ireland Executive has negative impact on our daily lives. 

With the absence of a functioning Executive, we are in a further period of damaging inertia.  Important decisions legally cannot now be made- the most obvious the finalising of a three-year budget 

Critical resourcing shortfalls in programmes cannot easily be fixed

For example, more than 60 voluntary and community organisations deliver our government’s flagship employment programme to support people re-enter the labour market. That’s young people, people with disabilities, those with mental health issues to cite a few categories.
