Good Relations Panel

In A Shared Future, Government made a public commitment to the establishment of a Good Relations Panel.
This cross-departmental group, chaired by the Head of the Northern Ireland Civil Service and supported by officials in OFMDFM, will report to Ministers. The panel which is made up of senior representatives from key departments, representatives from local government, the Housing Executive, the Police Service of Northern Ireland, Equality Commission and the Community Relations Council will harness actions across government.
The responsibilities of the Panel include:
  • co-ordinate long-term actions,
  • advise on targeting of resources
  • monitor outcomes,
  • develop the actions / priority areas
  • provide joined up coherent action to promote relationship building,
  • prepare the Triennial Action Plan underpinned by Section 75,
  • establishing a mechanism to involve, on an on-going basis, wider civic society in shaping a triennial action plan.
