NIACRO's vision is to be acknowledged as making a unique contribution to the development of a society in which the rights and needs of everyone, including offenders, are equally respected.
Justice: We believe that everyone in society, including offenders and victims, have the right to be treated fairly.
Dignity: We respect and value the worth of every individual.
Citizenship: We recognise members of society have both rights and responsibilities.
Non-violence: We recognise that violence and the threat of violence still permeate many communities and stakeholder groups in Northern Ireland.
Accountability: We will be accountable for all aspects of our work.

Right from the start the organisation relied on the help of volunteers, and we now have over 100.
2005 marked a real milestone with the move to our own purpose-built, centrally located building in Belfast's Amelia Street. We also have an office in Derry/Londonderry and some of our projects work out of premises in Armagh. We also operate in Magilligan Prison and Hydebank Wood Prison and Young Offenders Centre, where we work with prisoners and also run the visitors centres.
We work with service users in their own environments, including prison, pooling our skills and resources with other voluntary and statutory agencies. We also operate in all three prisons - Maghaberry, Magilligan and Hydebank Wood - including running the Visitors Centres in Magilligan and Hydebank.
