The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland and I, and officials have held discussions with a wide range of victims groups since the Secretary of State was appointed in February 2020. On 18 March, the Secretary of State chaired calls with ‘Healing Through Remembering’ and ‘WAVE’, and subsequent calls have since taken place with numerous groups at ministerial and official level.

The Secretary of State recognises the importance of engaging with victims groups, which represent all parts of the community in Northern Ireland, and the department will continue this engagement in the coming weeks and months.
