CARE in Northern Ireland is back up and running again with a Northern Ireland Public Affairs Officer based in Belfast once more.
CARE in Northern Ireland has taken a particular interest in the area of human trafficking in recent months, working closely with Lord Morrow on the drafting of his Human Trafficking and Exploitation (Further Provisions and Support for Victims) Bill. CARE in Northern Ireland is looking to build support for the bill right across the political spectrum and amongst church groups and NGO’s.
CARE in Northern Ireland is involved in campaigns around the issues of abortion, marriage & the family, euthanasia and social development affecting the UK and also specific matters relating to the province. Previous CARE in Northern Ireland staff have worked hard to be a light to Christ in the province and we hope to build on what they have achieved in the future.
CARE in Northern Ireland is blessed with thousands of supporters who continue to live out their mandate to be salt and light for Christ in Northern Ireland. Without their support, CARE in Northern Ireland’s work would not be possible. We hope to work closely with our supporters so that we can make a Christian difference for the sake of the future.
“I’m a great fan of CARE, There are people there who can help me start my thinking on some of the key issues.”
- Harold Miller, Bishop of Down and Dromore
“My Bible tells me that God doesn’t look for success, he looks for faithfulness, And if my reading of scripture is correct, then CARE is doing very well in my view.”
- Lord Mawhinney former Chairman of the Conservative Party
