Good Relations promotes respect, equality and tolerance between different people who live in the same place. In society, people might have different religious beliefs, political opinions, ethnicity, age, marital status or sexual orientation.
Together: Building a United Community Strategy

The strategy explains how government, community and individuals will work together to build a united community and achieve change with the following priorities:
- children and young people
- our shared community
- our safe community
- our cultural expression
