Westminster Election 2017

Westminster Election 2017The Westminster election on 08 June 2017 provides a platform to send a message to politicians regarding the future we want for young people in Northern Ireland.

During last year’s NI Assembly campaign we saw integrated education feature in the majority of party manifestos.  With the future shape of the Stormont government still in the spotlight, we have an opportunity to send a message to the political parties that citizens want positive change, an education system which tackles division and builds a united community, and a programme for government which reflects that aspiration.
