Ní Chuilín welcomes extension of community development budgets

Sinn Féin MLA Carál Ní Chuilín has welcomed a commitment by the Communities Minister Deirdre Hargey to extend Neighbourhood Renewal projects for the next two financial years.

Carál Ní Chuilín said: 

“I welcome today’s announcement by Communities Minister Deirdre Hargey to extend budgets given to Neighbourhood Renewal projects for the next two financial years. 

“This is a fantastic development for communities across the north and the 900 workers and countless volunteers who make a real and lasting difference in our communities. 

“Sinn Féin have fought long and hard alongside Neighbourhood Renewal projects in their campaign to have funding and services protected. 

“It’s unacceptable that workers and organisations enter each year with uncertainty and protective notice. Under these proposals Deirdre Hargey has committed to look at multi-annual funding to provide more security to organisations. 

“Once again; Minister Hargey has demonstrated her commitment to addressing poverty and disadvantage and to target resources at areas most in need.”

Teachers deserve a fair pay deal that reflects their incredible work and commitment to our young people.

@ChrisHazzardSF joined with a delegation of teachers from the North to hand in a letter to the British Prime Minister calling for an immediate pay deal for workers.

Education workers deserve fair pay & working conditions.

With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British Govt must urgently bring forward a pay deal for workers here.

We need an Executive restored now, & all parties working together to support workers & services.

In any other walk of life the person presiding over such a colossal failure would be sacked. The Minister for Justice is clearly not the person to restore people's confidence in public safety and she should resign.
