Manifesto 2016

Ahead of the 2016 Northern Ireland Assembly elections, NIACRO has developed a succinct policy manifesto of key asks for the next Assembly.

We ask that all political parties include the following five pledges in their manifesto to contribute to a safer and fairer society with less offending and fewer victims:

  1. Remove barriers to effective resettlement
  2. Stop criminalising children
  3. Support families and children affected by imprisonment
  4. Pursue alternatives to prosecution
  5. Commit to strategic partnership to reduce offending

Although this is not an exhaustive list, these five areas represent issues we believe need to be addressed to reduce crime and its impact on people and communities.
