NI Veterans are being encouraged to participate in the Government Consultation on the Legacy of Northern Ireland. The consultation is open until 10 September 2018.
More than 3,500 people were killed as a result of the Troubles. The hurt and suffering caused is still felt by people across Northern Ireland and beyond.
The Troubles affected lots of different people, including victims and survivors. People have been affected in different ways.
The Government is trying to find the best way to meet the needs of victims and survivors and to help people address the impact of the Troubles in the areas of information, justice and acknowledgement and help Northern Ireland transition to long term-term peace and stability. They need to do this in order to support true reconciliation and healing at a societal level.
