Law Centre (NI) aims to positively influence public bodies and government policy, practice and legislation. The policy unit seeks to identify, challenge and influence social policy as it evolves in the five areas of work also covered by casework (community care, immigration, employment, mental health and social security).
We do this by responding to consultations received from statutory authorities, writing briefing papers, liaising with political parties and representatives, by arranging conferences, seminars and meetings, by publishing reports and contributing to a wide variety of publications, both in-house and broader. In the policy pages you will find briefings written by our Policy Unit, as well as our responses to government consultations. The Policy Unit also releases regular bulletins detailing new and ongoing work.
