The Tackling Paramilitarism, Criminality and Organised Crime Programme works across Northern Ireland to support people and communities. Initiatives are delivered collaboratively by government departments, statutory agencies and partners in the voluntary and community sector.

“Our aim, by extending and refocusing the Executive’s Programme to address paramilitarism, criminality and organised crime is to stop harm, both in the here and now and for the longer term. 

Through the Programme we will cut off paramilitary supply chains, whether that’s paramilitary drugs that ruin people’s lives, money-lending that leads to misery or the violence that leaves vulnerable kids shot and maimed in the street. 

There should never be any place for this, and as a society, it’s so important we support the people who every day stop another generation being scarred in this way.”

Paramilitary gangs don’t help you.
They exploit you.
