Public Sector Reform

Public Sector Reform has been promoted as a key priority from within the Northern Ireland executive.

Whilst the Finance Minister has set out his desire to develop the role of the voluntary and community sector, NICVA want to ensure that our sector is fully prepared for potential challenges which may lie ahead.

Over the coming months we will publish a number of information papers which will explore the intricacies of reform and help organisations to prepare for the potential impacts of Public Sector Reform in Northern Ireland and its potentail effect on the voluntary and community sector.
