Forthspring Inter Community Group


In July 2020, the Education Minister appointed a panel to examine the links between educational underachievement and social disadvantage.

The panel invited written submissions from all interested parties with experience of the issues associated with educational underachievement linked to socio-economic disadvantage.

MUMO submitted this response, informed by working with two local schools over a five year period to support children and families in an area of disadvantage.


Forthspring welcomes the publication of the ‘Building Safer, Shared and Confident Communities’ and the debate it has encouraged on developing an agreed, effective community safety strategy.


Forthspring welcomed the work of the Consultative Group on the Past. We
strongly support the view that there is a need for society to address the issues relating to the conflict in and about Northern Ireland and the issues that gave
rise to the conflict in order to build a more peaceful future. Read our response:
