The Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission visited community representatives from Antrim and Newtownabbey on Thursday 1 June. The visit took place as part of the Commission’s continuing community engagement programme, and included meetings with a variety of community groups.
The Commission met with the Community Relations Forum, Senior Citizens Forum and local community groups. In addition, the Chief Commissioner met with the Antrim and Newtownabbey PSNI.
Chief Commissioner Les Allamby said: “We looked forward to Thursday’s visit to the Antrim and Newtownabbey area, and to engaging with local community groups and council representatives there. We would like to thank everyone who took the time to meet us. The Commission’s community engagement programme has so far enabled us to engage with a broad range of groups across Northern Ireland. We heard from local people and organisations on the issues that are most important to them. Such feedback helps us plan our own services and shapes our priorities going forward.”
