Key findings include:

  • Funding should be allocated entirely on objective need (according to 67.6% of respondents).
  • Approximately two-thirds (64.7%) of respondents do not believe that funders make it easy to build Full Cost Recovery into contracts.
  • Almost seven out of every ten respondents (68.2% of respondents) believe that ensuring board members have up to date skills is a difficult task (68.2% of respondents).
  • The proposed end to academic selection at age 11 is viewed to be a positive development (60.6% of respondents).
  • Over half of respondents (58.1%) view the summer parades season to be part of the culture of Northern Ireland.
