Budget 2015-2016

Northern Ireland's 2011-2015 Budget is coming to an end and the Northern Ireland Executive has published its Draft Budget 2015-2016 for the next financial year.

The Budget sets out the overall level of spending available to the Executive in 2015-16 and how its resources will be allocated to each government department.

Individual departments are responsible for providing further detail on how they will spend this money during the consultation period, which ends on 29 December 2014. These departmental spending plans are listed in the resources section below.

Following each of the consulation events, we will draw up a list of 'key asks' for each of the departments.

Update: You can now read our Response to the Northern Ireland Executive Draft Budget 2015-16.
