Relatives for Justice Social Support

 

Relatives for Justice are delighted to launch our new planned activities for the new year. As you will see there is a wide range of activities currently being planned. Exclusively designed with the needs of victims and survivors of the conflict in mind all of these activities have been suggested by members.

We are delighted to be running classes in Belfast from our Glen Road and Brompton Park offices; in our Dungannon office and in Gulladuff Cultural Centre.

Members are always keen to come along to our classes. If any of these interests you please get in touch as soon as possible as spaces are limited. Spaces are allocated on a first come, first served basis. And please note that we can only offer a space to the person contacting us.
