Community Relations Council
As part of the Central Community Relations Unit's (CCRU) Community Relations Programme core support is provided for the Northern Ireland Community Relations Council (CRC). The CRC was established in January 1990 to provide support, facilities, and recognition for community organisations operating at a local level. The main aim was to try to counter the effects of communal division. The CRC is an independent organisation which pursues its aims and objectives through support for a wide range of community relations initiatives:
The CRC aims to help the people of Northern Ireland to recognise and counter the effects of communal division. In doing so it seeks to promote equity of treatment, encourage respect for diversity and acknowledge interdependence within Northern Ireland.
The Community Relations Council has produced, and commissioned, a range of publications since 1990.
